Recovery support groups

Get recovery support in a safe space

For anyone living with an eating disorder or body image issue

The support group is a space where people can feel free to discuss topics related to recovery from disordered eating. This is a space for people to provide and receive social support so that they can feel heard and understood. The support group does not replace treatment by a trained professional. As such, if you were wanting to get answers to specific practical questions around eating disorder recovery, it is best to either direct them to your treating professionals or contact the Butterfly Helpline.

Note: all our face-to-face programs are currently on Zoom while COVID-19  measures are in place. In the meantime, we are offering personalised support through a small group video-conferencing format.

 

 

  • Get support and learn from others’ experiences – you don’t need to do this alone.
  • Run by our facilitators who have a lived experience of an eating disorder or body image issues.
