We are based at the Yorkshire Centre for Eating Disorders (YCED), Seacroft Hospital, Leeds. We are a carers' support group that aims to support people who care for anyone over 18 who is living with an eating disorder. Through sharing our knowledge and experiences, and offering empathy and understanding, we hope to help other carers support their loved one through recovery. We provide monthly support meetings for carers where people can meet up and share experiences and provide mutual support. The group is supported by Northpoint Wellbeing, a local charity, and the YCED, part of Leeds Partnerships NHS Foundation Trust. During each meeting, a group facilitator is there to:          Welcome attendees          Help attendees to feel relaxed          Help the conversation to flow          Ensure that the conversation remains safe          Ensure that every attendee feels that they have been heard but also feels comfortable with the discussion. Facilitators cannot:          Advise or tell you what to do          Provide therapy If you are concerned about a loved one's immediate health you should consider contacting your GP or Accident & Emergency department. Information about eating disorders can be found at www.b-eat.co.uk Highlighted Events Our next group is on Wednesday 1st of June and will be an open meeting with anyone welcome to attend.
