Eating Disorders Families Australia, a volunteer, not-for-profit organisation is now running our monthly Parent/Carer support groups called strive (Support Teach Reassure Inform Validate Empower) via online Zoom platform.
Strive is currently offered in Melbourne, Bendigo, Western Australia, South Australia, Tasmania & A.C.T., as well as strive NSW, QLD & NT which launched in July 2020! This is peer-led support with guest speakers covering topics vital to upskilling or resourcing Carers. EDFA also provides active facebook support via their State strive facebook sites
It is so beneficial making connections with others who truly understand what you are going through & reduces the isolation you feel, while giving you confidence & knowledge to be more effective carers for your loved one with an eating disorder.

EDFA now also offers specialist support groups for parents and carers of individuals experiencing ARFID (strive ARFID) and Bulimia Nervosa (strive Bulimia), as well as its new strive4Men support group for males (or anyone who identifies as male) caring for an individual with an eating disorder.
