For carers – friends and family seeking support skills

Collaborative Care Skills Workshop

This virtual, evidence-based workshop is available to anyone over age 18, anywhere in Australia. This program provides training and practical guidance to improve carers’ wellbeing, coping strategies, problem-solving skills and communication techniques. Our trained peer facilitators will draw on the wisdom of their lived experience to encourage carers in their vital role of caring for a loved one, friend or family member toward wellness and hope in their recovery.


Webinar Workshop for carers

Understanding Eating Disorder Recovery (UEDR)

Caring for a person with an eating disorder can be a long-term and skilled commitment. Yet friends and families often need to provide care with very little training or support. This free 6-week webinar based workshop will help you develop practical skills to support your loved one in their recovery.
