The Disordered Eating program supports youth aged 12 – 18 who struggle with all types of eating disorders and disordered eating.
We believe that within a supportive, non-judgmental environment we will develop a trusting and caring relationship with youth and their families. We provide client-centered counselling for the individual and the family in collaboration with local community resources as well as regional and provincial services.
Using a model of prevention, early intervention and treatment, this program focuses on both the psychological and nutritional aspects of disordered eating, while promoting the physical, emotional, social and spiritual well-being of our clients and their families. We value advocacy, mutual respect and open communication.
We accept referrals from anyone: young people, parents, school nurses or counsellors, physicians and other professionals.
The CMHA Disordered Eating Services are funded by the Ministry of Children and Family Development.
