23 Feb We want your help
A little while ago I posted via the MHB social media accounts to see if any followers/readers wanted to see something from us during Eating Disorder Awareness Week – which this year is 1st – 7th March.
After much deliberation, I have decided that, at this point in time, the absolute best thing I could do (based on the initial expressions of interest) is to run a ‘voices of experience in EDs’ discussion session. What this means is we want to gather together (virtually, of course) a group of individuals with experience, knowledge or interest in the field of Eating Disorders – whether you are a sufferer, have yourself recovered, are a parent or carer, are a therapist who reads my blog or has attended courses we deliver, or are a clinician or researcher in the field, we’d love to have you take part.
The purpose of the discussion session is to hear more about what is important to YOU in the field of EDs, and what direction you’d like my ‘Mental Health Bites’ platform to take next.
The blog, and related services, have been either “down” or minimally functioning over the last year largely as a result of the pandemic. So, now is a perfect time to stop, take stock and listen to what you want. We can then keep that feedback in mind as we move forward.
Do you love reading blogs or prefer vlogs? What topics most interest you? Should we expand our services – and if so, what’s missing? What is it that you need?
We are acutely aware that, in the ED field, often those personally affected, those working with clients, and those within research are often separated into their own little pools. We have always tried to be a place where all of those interested can come for information – and I think it’s time we stepped up our game and started to bring everyone together. Together, your voices ARE the field, and we want to hear them.
The discussion session will take place via Zoom on Friday 5th March from 7pm to 8:30pm (90 minutes) UK time. There will be the option to take part directly in the call by turning your camera and microphone on – or you can turn both of these off and just participate by typing in the chat. Whatever works for you is fine with us.
If you want to attend, please follow THIS LINK and fill out the form with your details. The email address you provide will be the address to which we send the Zoom link. Links will be sent out on the morning of the event.
Please be aware PLACES ARE LIMITED – so register sooner rather than later.
If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to ask.
