This ongoing free and confidential support group is open to all ages and genders who identify themselves as Asian or Pacific Islander and are struggling with anorexia, bulimia, binge eating disorder, compulsive overeating, overexercising, eating disorder NOS, chronic dieting, and other disordered eating and body image issues.

Eating disorders are more than merely about food, weight, and body image. They involve serious emotional and physical problems that can have life‐threatening consequences. Eating disorders also do not discriminate—they affect us all. For Asian‐Americans, the struggle is also social, racial, cultural, and familial. Come and find support on your journey towards recovery in a safe, non‐judgmental, and welcoming environment and feel less alone in your struggle. The group will be process‐oriented and address topics such as: Eating Disorder Symptoms & Warning Signs, Stages of Recovery, Coping Skills, Relapse Prevention Techniques, Managing Triggering Situations, Reducing Isolation and Shame, Building Peer Support while gearing towards the culturally specific, complex, and unique experiences of Asian‐Americans.
