Eating Disorder Recovery & Mental Health Support Group

Welcome! This is a support group for those with mental health di...fficulties/disorders and/or any type of eating disorder(s). Feel free to post anything that might concern you, your achievements, motivational/inspirational sayings or simply some venting. Also, we do not mind considering any suggestions for changes to the group that you might come up with. Don't forget to invite people who you think might benefit from this!

PLEASE FOLLOW THE RULES in order to keep this group safe, comfortable and supporting for EVERYONE. If you disagree with any of the rules message an admin to discuss it.

1. No numbers. All numbers no matter of how many digits should be replaced with symbols such as XXX. This includes weight, hours of exercise, calories, clothing sizes, number of suicide attempts, number of pills etc. Be respectful to one another by understanding that not everyone has the same triggers. Triggering even one person into old behaviours will not be tolerated, even if his/her trigger sounds bizarre to most. Amount of food eaten is also strictly not allowed!

2.No bullying or name calling. Bullies will be removed from the group immediately.

3. Photos and body shots or self harm pictures are not allowed in this group. Selfies showing only the face (no collarbones) might be okay but better get an admin's permission first. If you decide to post a picture of anything else (eg animals ) please make sure to do so in the comments of your post.

4. When you need to post something that might be triggering to some members ALWAYS place a TRIGGER WARNING before your post. Leave 5 or more lines between the post and the warning. Also next to the trigger warning tell us how that might be triggering (eg suicidal thoughts or intentions). For example:
Trigger warning (suicide talk)
.
.
.
.
.
YOUR POST.

5. This is not a pro ED or pro SH group. Those will not be tolerated and the post will be removed just like the member who has posted it.

6. No advertising without admin permission. This includes everything from Ray-Ban sunglasses to other support groups on Facebook. JUST ASK FIRST.

7. IF AN ADMIN SUSPECTS A MEMBER IS IN DANGER OR IS INTENDING TO HARM ANOTHER PERSON, LOCAL POLICE OR A FAMILY MEMBER WILL BE CONTACTED IMMEDIATELY. (!!!)

8. Messages to admins will not always be answered since this group is growing and it almost impossible to do so. Please do not get upset over it and if you feel like a post needs to be monitored or deleted simply tag an admin (or more!) to take care of it.

Above all, treat everyone like you would like to be treated. With LOVE and RESPECT. We are all different and come from different backgrounds but if we stick together we can achieve great things, starting with a healthy and successful recovery. Life can suck at times, so please don't ever give up. The pain you are feeling right now will make sense at some point in your life and will be the creator of an amazing person with extreme strength. Take care people. :)
