Peer Support group

19/08/19 - Meeting with Mark Sawyer: Mark was really on board with this idea. He stated that the Eating Difficulties Peer Support group worked really well this year - led by Kathy. Suggested a relapse prevention type programme that councillors can refer into. Would be more informal in structure, with a social and semi-structured format. Suggested creating a programme for the sessions - perhaps inviting guest speakers and external charities in to give talks.
