Solace is a free video-based peer support group hosted over Zoom. It’s for anyone supporting somebody with an eating disorder.
Solace gives you the opportunity to share how you’re feeling and get support from others who are caring for people with eating disorders.
The group is led by participants, while an experienced eating disorder clinician will facilitate and offer a theme to base discussion around, such as meal plans, setting boundaries and understanding why change is difficult. You’ll also get the chance to raise other points for discussion and, where possible, to speak with a Beat Ambassador, a person who has recovered from an eating disorder themselves.
In Wales, Solace groups run on Mondays from 19:00-20:30. Wales has a dedicated group to ensure conversation is relevant to its healthcare system. Should Monday be unsuitable, you can register for our UK group instead.
No. Every Solace group is booked individually, so you can decide whether you want to attend regularly or just occasionally.
You can, but please do be aware that spaces are limited and we would like to make sure as many people get support as possible.
Please let us know as soon as possible if you won’t be using your space so that we can offer it to somebody else.
In order to join Solace, you’ll need a good internet connection and a working camera.
If you have other questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
