For Families

Eating disorders don’t just happen to an individual. They impact families and loved ones, too.

When Someone You Love Has an Eating Disorder

Recovery from an eating disorder requires professional help, and chances of recovery are improved the sooner a person begins treatment. With some education, friends and family can play a key role in identifying symptoms, encouraging someone to seek help, and providing support throughout the recovery process. Having a strong support network can make all the difference in successful recovery from an eating disorder.

For Parents

It’s hard to watch our children struggle, and when a daughter is diagnosed with an eating disorder, it can be a painful and confusing time. Why did this happen? What do you need to communicate to schools, coaches, and other family members? How do you handle questions from friends or colleagues? Where can you turn for support? Our program recognizes that eating disorders don’t just happen to individuals, they happen to families. We can help provide you with education, information, and support, so you don’t feel so alone.
