Selfhelp for carers

The EDA and other self-help organisation also offer a wide range of services for carers of young people with eating disorders. I include more on this in Chapter 11, Caring for the carer.

There are other self-help organisations that you might like to contact, such as Anorexia and Bulimia Care (ABC). It is a Christian organisation run by Christians for sufferers, their families and for carers in the UK. You can visit the Anorexia and Bulimia Care website at www.anorexiabulimiacare.co.uk

The key message of this chapter is that you are not alone. There is plenty of support out there and it is well worth making the effort to make contact with other people who have been through similar experiences. Self-help might sound daunting at first but the benefits are enormous. There is already a well-established self-help network in the UK and it is growing all the time.
