National Alliance for Eating Disorders Support Groups

The Alliance provides free, weekly, therapist-led eating disorder support groups (both virtual and in-person), these communities not only aid in decreasing isolation, but provide individuals with a sense of belonging. They offer an environment of acceptance that serves as a refuge for those who may feel misunderstood and also creates a community where participants feel seen, heard, supported, and valued.

Eating disorder support groups provide a free, virtual space where caregivers (i.e parents, spouses, roommates, and others in the position of providing support to someone navigating an eating disorder) and siblings (age 15 and over) can come together and find community in recovery.
