Parent and Carer's Online Community
Welcome to the ABC Parent and Carer's Online Community. This online community has been created to help and support you if you have a friend or someone in your family who is battling an eating disorder. Through this platform you can share your feelings and experiences and give and gain support and encourgement from others in similar situations. To make a post please go to the relevant category and click the 'make a post' button and once you are happy with it click 'submit'. Your post will then appear on the online community for others to respond to in their own time.
The headings on the right of the categories entitled 'Health Facts' are links to useful articles. We have also recently introduced a frequently asked questions section, for scenarios that we hear about regularly, your contributions to these posts are welcomed.
To join this confidential Community please read the rules and register your membership. Some parents and carer's have chosen to create an anonomous user name. Thanks to Lottery funding this community is currently free, but donations will enable us to keep it running. If you have any problems logging on, or using the Online Community, or you would just like to give us some feedback please use the 'contact administrator' button on the home page.
Supporting someone who is battling an eating disorder can be challenging and exhausting, but there are more positive times as well. In order to celebrate the good times and to give hope to others you are invited to share your good news stories alongside an image. Please send them to the administrator using the link button at the bottom of each posts' page. The picture on the home page at the moment is Becky Scholey and her sister; click on her picture to read her good news story.
As a member of the online parent and Carer's community ABC would like to offer you a free copy of 'The Parent and Carer's Guide to Eating Disorders' by Jane Smith (RPP£7.99) If you would like a copy of this book please email the administrator through the contact administrator button with your postal address.
