New Carer Support Group Launches in Derry

Tuesday, October 10, 2017

EDA are delighted that a new carer support group is launching in Derry on Wednesday 11th October 2017. This will undoubtedly be a much needed service for those families who are struggling with an eating disorder in their lives. Supporting someone with an eating disorder can be a confusing and indeed very difficult time with the illness seriously impinging upon every aspect of family life. Evidence shows that supporting those who are caring for their loved one on a daily basis is so very important and it is well documented that a supportive family environment can be a great protective factor in fighting the illness.
We wish this new group all the very best on their journey in supporting those families struggling with an eating disorder in the Western board area.
