GEDS provides support groups twice a month for our members on a Monday night from 5.45-7.30. Once a month these groups are run in the Tom Allan Centre, 23 Elmback street, Glasgow and once a month they are run at Glasgow University, 64 Oakfield Avenue, Glasgow. Please check our website or social media for the dates and locations! All those experiencing difficulties with disorder eating, exercise, body image etc are welcome. We realise it can be very anxiety provoking to attend your first group, if it would help then a member can come and meet you at the front of the building to bring you inside, please contact us with plenty of notice to arrange this. You can find out more information about us on our website:http://www.gerberaeatingdisorderservices.com/ and our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/GEDS.Group and HTTP://www.facebook.com/geds.team
