This support group takes place every Thursday at 8 pm ET.
Join fellow caregivers and family members for a weekly Internet Support Group offering support, education about eating disorders, and connection with other individuals with shared experiences. Participation in the group is online, free, and open to anyone supporting someone with an eating disorder. Participants can attend as often as they would like with no pressure to attend group every time. A four week commitment is encouraged. Please note, the group is a supplemental support for families and it is not a replacement for eating disorder treatment, therapy, or medical advice.
Whether you are struggling with an eating disorder or your mental health, we believe that with trusted, expert support and community connection, healing is always possible. Eating Recovery Center and Pathlight Behavioral Health offers several free support groups led by trained masters-level clinicians for those who need some extra support, especially during the COVID-19 crisis. These groups are available for alumni, community members and families of loved ones in treatment.
To ensure your safety and that of our teammates, our support groups are currently only taking place online. This means that you're able to connect with others and our staff from the convenience of your home!
Note: In order to offer virtual support resources to as many people in need as possible, we ask that you only attend one ERC | Pathlight support group per week. We are also capping attendance at 15 people at each virtual support group –support groups are first-come, first-served.
We are excited to connect with you!
