Eating Disorders Adult Support Group 18+

Professionally-led support group on Thursday 5:30-6:30 pm Alaska Time

  • 1 hour
  • Online, Virtual Meeting

Service Description

The Alaska Eating Disorders Alliance (AKEDA) offers a free and confidential support group for Alaskans aged 18+ who are either currently experiencing an eating disorder or desire additional support in their recovery. Meetings occur virtually on Thursday nights from 5:30-6:30 (pm) except on holidays. The group will be limited to 20 people per week — you are encouraged to sign in 5 minutes early to assure a spot. Groups are facilitated by Alaskan mental health professionals and graduate students. The facilitators and co-facilitators will help assure that conversations remain safe and supportive. The group will not provide therapy; rather the goal is to serve as a place for support and the building of a positive, pro-recovery community. Once you register and sign the confidentiality forms you will receive an email with the Zoom login information. If you don't receive this email, please check your junk folder. IMPORTANT: When you receive the Zoom login, you may use this for all future support groups. Please join us from a quiet, confidential place. You will be able to join using any computer, smartphone, or tablet using the Zoom app. When you register, you must acknowledge that you have read and agree to the AKEDA's confidentiality policy and group guidelines. This includes acknowledging that AKEDA provides support -- we are a non-treatment entity. Your recovery process might include the services of treatment professionals external to The Alaska Eating Disorders Alliance. Confidentiality is very important to creating a safe and supportive environment at AKEDA. We ask that everyone involved respect and maintain everyone’s right to confidentiality. We look forward to seeing you at an upcoming group and are glad that you are reaching out for support.
