ANAD’s oldest support service are our eating disorder, self-help support groups. Support group leaders donate their time and expertise in helping people with eating disorders and their loved ones try to find recovery for themselves.

As a Support Group Leader, you will be responsible for:

  • Securing a free, safe and easily accessible location for members to meet on a regular basis
  • Committing to arriving on time to every group meeting, and if you are unable to attend, communicating this to ANAD and to your support group and providing a substitute leader if possible
  • Passing an initial background check
  • Leading your group properly by following ANAD guidelines on how to lead a safe and supportive group

It is not required that Support Group Leaders are clinicians nor have a background in psychology.

How This Helps Our Community

Peer support groups can help tremendously when someone is suffering with an eating disorder, because it allows them to share what they are feeling and thinking is a safe, non-threatening environment where they will not be judged for having an eating disorder.

How to Apply hello@anad.org https://anad.org/volunteer/opportunities/lead-support-group/

Visit our website to apply. If approved, you will complete an online training, phone screen with ANAD staff, pass a background check, and locate a space to host your group.

Support group leaders are required to be above 21 years of age, and to be in strong recovery from an eating disorder (if applicable) before beginning.
