Support Groups

Our free eating disorder support groups are held on the 1st and 3rd Tuesdays of every month from 6:30pm to 8:00pm (except major holidays).

Enlighten Group (First Tuesday)

This education-based group includes a short presentation from an eating disorder expert, followed by breakout groups for support and processing. This group is for individuals with eating disorders and their families/friends and other supports.

WHEN: 1st Tuesday of each month
6:30 pm-7:00 pm, everyone meets together in Siegle Education Center for education portion
7:00 pm-8:00 pm
Family and Friends meet downstairs in PHP/M’s Place Group Room

Strengthen Group (Third Tuesday)

The Strengthen session is divided into two groups: one for individuals with eating disorders, and one for families/friends and other supports. Both Strengthen groups are for sharing experiences, strategies, encouragement, and hope.

 WHEN: 3rd Tuesday of each month, 6:30 pm-8:00 pm
Family and Friends meet downstairs in PHP/M’s Place Group Room
Eating disorder group meets in Siegle Education Center

(NOTE: We do not all meet together as a group in the Siegle Education Center on the 3rd Tuesday at 6:30 pm. You can go directly to your group’s space listed above instead.)

Please be sure to attend the appropriate group. Support people, those who do not personally have an eating disorder but are coming to support a family member or friend, are to attend the Family and Friend Group.
To maintain integrity of the groups, we do not allow “observers.”
