Did you know that Eating Disorders disproportionately affect members of the 2SLGBTQIA+ community? While there is a severe lack of research – we know in practice that the severity of the ED and co-morbidities are much greater in the queer community.
So to help, here is a list of resources for those needing affirming care, support, and treatment (including many free support groups).
Group I lead: FED Eating Disorder Group
Time: Every 1st Wednesday from 7:00-8:00 pm PST
San Luis Obispo Gala Pride and Diversity Center / Zoom
Description: FED stands for F*ck Eating Disorders. We are a pro-recovery group and offer space for those who need peer support, at all stages of ED recovery. We understand that recovery is not linear, and judgment-free support is crucial. Come join us to listen, share, and be part of a community building each other up. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more.
