Peer Mentors with Eating Disorders NS play an essential role in supporting folks working on recovery. Our Peer Mentors bring their expertise working on their own recovery, managing relapses, and living their lives free from the confines of an eating disorder.
Mentors complete a 30-hour training program and take part in ongoing support and training through our Community of Practice.
Each mentor decides their level of involvement, which can range from 2 hours a month and up.
Peer Mentoring and Peer Support is not treatment, and peer supporters are not jr therapists, but rather leverage their own expertise to motivate, inspire, and encourage others.
