Recovery Support Groups

Butterfly invites those experiencing an eating disorder; Anorexia, Bulimia, Binge Eating Disorder and Other Specified Feeding and Eating Disorder (OSFED) to attend our Recovery Support Groups held once a month in Sydney, Adelaide and Townsville.

These groups provide opportunities for gaining information, insight, encouragement and support from others with similar experiences in a safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment.
These groups provides opportunity to:

  • Discuss and share your lived experience
  • Learn and share coping strategies
  • Meet others in a similar situation to you 

Participants must be 18 years or over and motivated to engage. We do set some minimum wellness criteria that one of the counsellors can discuss with you at the time of booking. Call Butterfly's National Helpline 1800 33 4673 or email support@thebutterflyfoundation.org.au for more information or to register for a Recovery Support Group.

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. ›

Concerned parents & carers

Communicating your concern with your child about eating and dieting behaviour can be extremely difficult. Butterfly offers a range of services that can provide you with skills and information related to communicating with your child.  

 

We can help you with recognising issues and what to do. ›

Teachers & Professionals Working with Young People

Teachers and those working with young people are often the first to become aware of dis-ordered eating behaviours.  Butterfly Education provides early intervention and prevention skills for professionals working with young people.
