What we do

The program runs over four days per week helping people build skills to work towards recovery. The program is split into six modules all including skills development, meal support, mindfulness, shopping and cooking, therapeutic and educational groups. Attendees are required initially to commit to at least two days per week.

The program includes input from dieticians, group therapists, as well as movement, art therapy, and horticulture therapy. With a focus on supporting people to regulate their eating individuals are guided through the program in collaboration with a care Co-ordinator from the team who will offer individual support with planning and goal setting.
