Support groups

EDANI runs a monthly support group aimed at supporting anyone who is affected by an eating disorder. These groups run on the last Tuesday of every month at 7pm in our offices in Belfast and are facilitated by trained volunteers who have direct experience with eating disorders. These groups provide people experiencing an eating disorder the opportunity to give and receive support from others going through a similar experience. The groups also provide practical support and information, as well as creating an opportunity to discuss and share feelings and experiences in a non-judgemental environment. These groups also provide understanding, help and support to family members and friends who are trying to help their loved one through an eating disorder.

We run two groups to provide support to both those living with an eating disorder and those who are caring for someone with an eating disorder. Groups are open to everyone and are free and confidential to attend, no appointments are necessary to attend our groups. If you would like more information about the groups please feel free to contact a member of the team before you attend on the information below.

Please feel free to call into our centre or contact our helpline at any time. Helpline No. 02890235959.


Creative Expressions Support Group ( Resumes in 2017)

EDANI also runs a weekly support group during the day for those struggling with an eating disorder. This group has a different format in comparison to the regular monthly group and utilises ‘art’ to try and help the person to think and talk about how they are feeling.

Do you find it hard to express how you are feeling? 

Don't know how to explain? 

Don't know what to say? 

Don't know how you even feel? 

You do not need to be an ‘artist’ to come to this group, it is more about you having the space to be free to express on a piece of paper, using paint, markers, colouring pencils, or whatever you want to use.

This group in addition to our monthly group, is another outlet to help you talk about how you are feeling.

Please do not hesitate to give us a call if you would like to find out more 028 90 235959
