Swan groups are facilitated by Beat staff, who help to kick-start supportive conversations and moderate in line with rules for online services. Groups have been designed to help you feel comfortable and able to take part in free-flowing peer support. Each group has an opening warm up, time for themed discussion, and time for free chat where you can share experiences, thoughts, successes and problems with others who relate to your situation.
The Swan anorexia support group runs on Monday and Thursday from 6.45pm to 8.00pm.
If you have any questions or concerns about our Online Support Groups, please email us.
Spotting the signs of anorexia is more difficult than many people realise and include behavioural and psychological signs as well as physical.
Anorexia is a serious mental illness. As such, there are a number of different treatment options available including therapy and self-help.
