The ANAD Recovery Mentor program pairs someone who has recovered from an eating disorder with someone who is working on recovering from an eating disorder.

A Recovery Mentor will be available by phone, email, or text, and will help model for the person in recovery how to safely express and feel their feelings, give them space to feel and be themselves, and support them in committing to their recovery.

Recovery mentors must be over 21 years of age, and based in the United States. Visit anad.org/volunteer/opportunities/recovery-mentor/ to apply.

How This Helps Our Community

This program is beneficial to someone in recovery, because at many times they will feel very alone and like no one understands them which can trigger eating disorder behavior. Having a Recovery Mentor will allow them to reach out for support from someone who understands what they are going through and who will not judge them.

How to Apply hello@anad.org https://anad.org/volunteer/opportunities/recovery-mentor/
