Youth Advisory Group
Many Eating Disorders occur in adolescence. It is important to acknowledge that every generation has a unique perspective and unique problems to overcome. Youth who have experienced an Eating Disorder and have made a decision to work on recovery are a valuable asset to the Eating Disorder Program, to our community and to each other. They are able to provide insight into societal pressures, problems of their peers and ways to connect with them. They ensure that the needs and voices of adolescents are represented and heard.
