We are happy to take new clients and can offer a range of specialist support. Please encourage anyone with an eating disorder related concern to get in touch with us.

Meanwhile, this crib sheet should give you some basic information about eating disorders and how to support someone who is struggling with a food or eating related mental health concern.


SWEDA Eating Disorders Help Sheet

“I saw a SWEDA support worker on campus at university. I had been struggling with binge eating disorder and compulsive exercise for about ten years. The SWEDA support worker was able to help me look at my relationship with food and my body in a different way. I have learned to be kinder to myself and they taught me techniques which helped me to slow down my thinking. Now I can go out and have fun without worrying all the time.”
