After Work Support Group for Families of People with Eating Disorders Starts 23 May 2012

EDANZ is starting a monthly “Drop In After Work” Support Group for people who care for others with long term/severe eating disorders. The 1st group starts on Wednesday 23rd May 5 – 6.30pm.

Supporting someone with a longterm eating disorder can be extremely challenging and isolating. This EDANZ group is starting in response to feedback from family/whanau and it is hoped that the group will help support people in this situation.

Join other families for a relaxed and supportive get together.
