Carers

Stafford Education Group

What is the group?

We hold a monthly meeting for carers who provide support and care to friends or relatives who are suffering with an Eating Disorder.

 

The group is facilitated by professionals working within the field of eating disorders and provides education and an understanding in how eating disorders impact on carers and how you can help the sufferer to work towards recovery. Each group focuses on a specific area and will link into the previous sessions. Topics will be presented with time for discussion and resources for further information will be available.

 

Professionals cannot discuss or divulge information on individual's who are receiving treatment within the service.

All information shared at this group remains confidential.
