Eating disorders are one of the most difficult and most expensive psychiatric conditions to treat. Millions of people don't have access to treatment while others go on to relapse. Eating disorders are influenced by an array of factors and every person's experience is unique. Eating disorder support requires versatile and out-of-the-box approaches. Past and present systemic violence and oppression breeds dysfunctionality and it's bound to extend in relationship to self and food. We understand that living with an eating disorder means many twists and turns in the journey and that make living without eating disorder behaviors difficult to obtain at times.
We understand the need of neutral spaces that allow individuals to come as they are without being shamed. Everyone deserves access to education and support free from coercion.
Come when you want to and leave when you're ready!
That is why we created the first eating disorder harm reduction based community circle. This is a space for folks who have lived eating disorder experience can find ways to break isolation, increase eating disorder literacy, and reduce harm.
What is eating disorder harm reduction?
Eating Disorder Harm Reduction (EDHR) is a paradigm-shifting compassionate and pragmatic approach that aims to improve the quality of life of individuals living with eating disorders without requiring or focusing too narrowly on eating disorder behavior abstinence.
The goal of EDHR is to provide empowering education that encourages self-awareness and risk assessment. EDHR is made up of practical and in many cases over-the-counter strategies that help individuals stay safe(r) and reduce negative eating disorder health impacts.
Who is this for?
Individuals older than 18 who are living with an eating disorder or have lived experience. People questioning recovery and not in recovery are welcome. Open to people who understand that food and body-image are political matters. Open to white conspirators.
