Eating Disorder Family Support Group
Please take the time to consider joining one of Silver Lining Foundations’ Eating Disorder Family Support Groups. If someone you love and care for is struggling with an eating disorder, you are not alone and we would like to help support you.
In partnership with the Canadian Mental health Association (CMHA), we offer an 8 week support group for parents and loved ones coping with the many challenges of caring for someone they love with an eating disorder.
Group participants will learn skills to help support their loved one, gain peer support and techniques for self-care during stressful times. There will be opportunities to gain a deeper understanding of eating disorders; share experiences, challenges, successes, strategies and ideas with others facing similar struggles and with experienced therapists.
These sessions are offered free of charge by Silver Linings Foundation and CMHA and require you to register by calling 403-297-1700 (M-F 9am -> 4:30pm) and ask to register for the eating disorder family support group.
