peer-to-peer connections

The Eating Disorder Centre of SSMU has a virtual messaging platform for individuals interested in having space to exchange individually with our McGill volunteers on their experience. The volunteers provide non-directional, non-judgemental, inclusive support through messages. This service is free of charge, and does not require any kind of diagnosis. It is open to anyone who wishes to discuss experiences with disordered eating, body image issues, and/or eating disorders.

☆ Each McGill user is matched with two McGill volunteers

☆ Volunteers answer messages within 72 hours

☆ Support is virtual, long-term, and confidential

In 2019, we were honoured to have the help of creative agency My Media Creative, who made us a stunning video about our peer support services.
