 ABC's Guide to Coping with an Eating Disorder during Coronavirus

Like every organisation, ABC, its services and staff, are impacted by Coronavirus and the recommendations made by the Government. Our first priority remains the health, wellbeing and safety of those that use our support services, as well as our staff, and inevitably this means, for now, we have to change the way we work and the services we offer. Scroll down for full information on our support services during Coronavirus.

We know many people with eating disorders and their families will be finding this situation extremely tough. Our team has put together our top tips and ideas for coping with social distancing, isolation and the impact on meals, food and exercising. The guide includes information for both individuals, their families and loved ones.
