Hi guys,

So I've come home from university to do recovery 'right', and my family are a great support for me. My mum in particular is pretty involved in my treatment, and whilst my treatment clinic does offer a parents/carers group, it's mostly educational. It's been over three years since I first got treatment- she 'knows her stuff' by now. She's said several times, though, that she really wishes she had some support- stuff that's focused on her rather than on me.

Does anyone have any good links? The only forum I know of is aroundthedinnertable, and that's more suited to parents doing Maudsley with younger children.

Thanks,
xx

I hear totally rave reviews about a FB group called Mothers Against Eating Disorders. I imagine fathers are welcome, too!
