Jersey Eating Disorders Support

Eating Disorders are illnesses that are characterised by irregular eating habits.  They can cause severe distress about body weight or shape.  Eating disturbances may include inadequate or excessive food intake which can ultimately damage an individual's wellbeing.  They are not a fad, phase or lifestyle choice.  People struggling with an eating disorder are advised to seek professional help.  The earlier a person with an eating disorder receives treatment, the greater the chance of physical and emotional recovery. 

Jersey Eating Disorders Support offers a safe space to express how you are feeling, whether you are affected by an eating disorder, or you are a carer of a relative or friend with an eating disorder. 

Group support meetings are held every first and third Monday of the month in the Dumaresq Room at The Jersey Library from 6 -7pm. They are for those living with an eating disorder and those supporting someone with one.

We also offer free one-to-one counselling and peer support sessions for those living with an eating disorder and those supporting them.

Because of the social distancing that is required whilst we are coping with the Coronavirus pandemic, we have decided to continue to support whoever needs us, by holding support group sessions on Zoom instead. They will be from 6.30 - 7.30pm every first and third Monday evening (except public holidays) until we are able to hold them face-to-face at the Jersey Library.  Please visit our facebook page www.facebook.com/JEDSjersey in order to find the invitation and Zoom link to the next meeting.
