What is ‘Talking Eating Disorders’?

Talking Eating Disorders (TEDs) is a Liverpool based Eating Disorder support group and is part of Beat’s self–help network. It is open to anyone over the age of 16 who is experiencing an Eating Disorder. The group also actively encourages carers, parents, extended family members and friends of those experiencing any eating disorder.

This includes an individual who:

  • Is not in treatment and needs additional support towards a first step to recovery
  • Is already in treatment and needs additional support from a safe environment
  • Has been in recovery for some time but feels occasionally support is needed

The group provides the opportunity to meet people in similar situations, gain information and encouragement.  The group provides support from other people with similar experiences in a safe, confidential and non-judgmental environment.

In the group you can:

  • Discuss and share your experiences
  • Express your feelings
  • Learn or share coping strategies towards recovery

TEDs hold a monthly support group where we offer an opportunity to talk, share experiences and support each other.
