The Sussex Eating Disorders Peer Support Service is a partnership between Men Get Eating Disorders Too, As You Are and the Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust. We offer groups in across West Sussex including Chichester, Haywards Heath, Horsham and Worthing. The main purpose for the groups is to provide those who attend a space to meet with others in a similar situation to share their experiences and coping strategies. Our group aim is to ease isolation by offering inclusion to those who attend. Our groups offer:

1. A safe and welcoming environment where those directly affected by eating disorders and those in a supporting role can share and discuss their experiences.

2. Information and advice on eating disorders to enable better understanding of symptoms.

3. Gateways to support including counselling, other therapies, support groups and treatment e.g. West Sussex Eating Disorders Service.

Any individual affected by eating disorders and problem eating over the age of eighteen from the Brighton and Hove area is able to attend the groups. Those wishing to attend are welcome to be part of the Peer Support group whether or not they are currently receiving support such as counselling or other therapies.
