"How can I help the person I care about?" is a phrase we often hear at the Kelty Centre. When a friend or loved one is struggling with an eating disorder it can be hard to know what you could do to help them. In this Pinwheel, our panel will discuss strategies and best practices for supporting a friend or loved one with an eating disorder.
