Pilar Programme for Families

Why do we provide this programme?

Supporting family and parents has always been a core aspect of our work. As such, we now offer parents and families a free four week (1 evening per week) structured programme, incorporating both psychoeducation and support, as well as practical advice and skills to help you support your family member towards recovery.

In particular, the programme addresses:

  • Understanding eating disorders
  • Understanding the mindset of the a person, how to manage at home
  • Dealing with meal times, routines, different behaviours and triggers
  • Recovery – what is the recovery process and how does it happen?

Please direct queries about the programme to Harriet Parsons, helpline@bodywhys.ie

Since 2014, the programme has been delivered in Athlone, Cavan, Carlow/Kilkenny, Cork, Dublin, Kerry, Limerick, Mayo, Sligo and Waterford.
