Eating Disorders Support Group – Change of Meeting Dates Eating Disorders Support Group
We are pleased to announce that Health and Wellness, in partnership with Accessibility Services, will be running a weekly support group for students with disordered eating. This is an opportunity to connect with others, express feelings and explore underlying issues. This is not a treatment or intervention group but rather a chance to meet others and share coping strategies that do not include food.
*The Eating Disorders Support Group will no longer be meeting on Mondays in the South Sitting Room in Hart House. The meetings will now take place on Tuesdays for the rest of the term.
Tuesday, March 12
North Dining Room, Hart House
2nd floor, left hallway
Drop-ins are welcome!
Co-facilitators: Janine Robb, Health and Wellness, & Ellie Goldenberg, Accessibility Services
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Ellie at firstname.lastname@example.org or (416) 978-8219.
