    Eating Disorder Support Groups

Conversations About Families' Experiences with Eating Disorders (CAFE - ED)  

A group to support families and carers in addressing the challenges raised by eating disorders, through the sharing of information, ideas and experiences

This new, time-limited, group-based intervention seeks to offer support to families and carers in addressing the challenges raised by eating disorders. The group combines the sharing of psycho educational information alongside an opportunity for open discussion of the ideas and experiences of participants.

The group is available to all families and carers (including siblings) of anyone who is receiving care in relation to an eating disorder from the Adult Community Health teams within Somerset Partnership
