‘Is recovery possible?’ It’s a question we get asked regularly and one that is very understandable when in the midst of the twists and turns of the recovery journey. All of us at BodyMatters are strong advocates that recovery is achievable and we love that we are able to share personal recovery journeys with you. BodyMatters will be hosting an Online Recovery Talk on Saturday the 12th of September and is open to anyone struggling or recovered from an eating disorder as well as parents, partners and health professionals trying to understand the recovery process. The group will run from 5:30pm-7:00pm and the cost is $15 per person. There will also be an opportunity for a Q&A at the end for anyone who would like to ask any questions!
