The Manx Eating Disorders Support Group is holding an open night for both sufferers and carers next week.
The event takes place on Wednesday, September 18, from 6pm-8pm, at Keyll Darree Nurse Education Centre, opposite Noble’s Hospital, Braddan.
A brief talk will start the event, and this will be followed by the chance to speak, in the strictest of confidence, to a member of the group.
The charity was launched in 2011 to offer help to both men and women with eating disorders or eating difficulties, in various stages of their illness and recovery, through a self-help support group.
It was launched by Donna Whalley and Georgie Shelley, and they have recently been joined by Liz Partridge.
The group is run within the guidelines and standards of Beat, the UK eating disorder charity, and is part of the Beat UK-wide self-help network. It’s also planning to form a carers’ support group to help those supporting people with eating disorders and difficulties.
