This group is so warm, accepting and supportive

I’m not sure how I would have managed this journey without the EndED carer support group. No-one can understand the challenges and pain involved in caring for someone with an eating disorder like another carer who has lived experience. This group is so warm, accepting and supportive, and that has gone a long way to helping me continue on without losing my own mental health.

Gay and Mark Forbes who have hosted the group are in no small way responsible for driving not just the group culture but also the exciting action towards improving eating disorder services on the Sunny coast. It provides hope in a long and sometimes very depressing journey. There has been a sense of strength in having a group of people who really ‘get it’ and are determined to change the inadequate and sometimes appalling experiences with current treatment options. I’m so glad I was a part of the initial carer group that became EndED: so much strength; love; wisdom and even laughter forged from the suffering.

And now EndED has grown to include a support group for those struggling with an eating disorder and I see my daughter find some help there too; thank you!
