Carer Support Groups

Butterfly invites those that are caring for a loved one with an eating disorder to attend one of our Carer Support Groups.

Carer Support Groups are open to any individual 18 years or over who is caring for a person with an eating disorder. The group provides opportunity to discuss the challenges of helping your loved one through their journey and how to offer support and encouragement. Butterfly Carer Support Groups create an environment where you can connect with other carers and express your feelings and personal challenges. 

Call Butterfly's National Helpline 1800 33 4673 or email for more information or to register for a Carer Support Group. Bookings are essential.

Cost: $20

You can now make online payments for Support Groups.

Worried about a friend or someone you care about?

It can be extremely difficult raising the subject of eating disorders with a friend or loved one. To be supportive one needs to learn what to say and what not to say.  


We can help you with knowing when to talk to your friend and what to say. ›
