We meet on the first Monday of the month to share experiences, in a safe and confidential setting, and to offer each other support whilst looking towards recovery.
Those who attend often find that they share many common experiences, which can be discussed with others. It can make a big difference to know that someone else knows and understands what you are feeling.
Each meeting begins with a welcome and details of any items of interest. Following this, sufferers and carers form separate groups, each with a facilitator of appropriate experience. Refreshments are available before the sharing sessions in our library room.
Speakers are invited regularly to give presentations on a variety of topics. Group members are encouraged to make suggestions. Sharing time still takes place on these evenings after the speaker’s session.
We have a library of informative and helpful books and CDs for members to borrow. We ask for a small deposit, which is returned to you when the resources are returned. Please try and return items within two months.
Hi there, I would love to come to the next meeting. I am in recovery for an eating disorder and whilst I have made major progress in my mental state, I have been doing it by myself. I’ve had amazing friends and family as support, and some of them suggested how effective support groups were so I was hoping I could come to the next meeting. Where and when is it?
Our next meeting is this coming Monday 2nd May in the meeting rooms above Cafe Credo (14-20 John St, Aberdeen AB25 1BT). Book a place through Irene via our contact form https://www.needs-scotland.org/contact-us/ . I’m sure there would be a seat for you and very much look forward to seeing you if you come along.
