This support group takes place every Monday at 12 pm ET.
The virtual LGBTQ+ Midday Eating Disorder Support Group is an opportunity for ERC alumni and community members to receive midday support in a group within a safe space for those who identify as a part of the LGBTQ+ community. This group is open to anyone who identifies as LGBTQ+ and that is seeking eating disorder (Anorexia, Bulimia, Binge Eating and other disordered eating issues) recovery & body image support. We will provide peer support for the unique challenges that individuals in this group may be facing. Please note, the group is a supplemental support and is not a replacement for higher levels of care, 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!
