Sussex ED Peer Support Service

The Sussex Eating Disorders Peer Support Service (branded as SEDS Peer 2 Peer) is a partnership involving Men Get Eating Disorders Too, As You Are and the Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust. The Brighton and Hove Eating Disorders Peer Support Service (branded as BHEDS Peer 2 Peer) is a partnership between Men Get Eating Disorders Too, As You Are, The Carers’ Centre for Brighton and Hove and the Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust.

The Sussex Peer Support Service will involve two groups monthly for men and women directly affected by eating disorders in Chichester, Haywards Heath, Horsham and Worthing. The Brighton and Hove Peer Support Service will involve two groups: one for men and women directly affected by eating disorders and one for their families and friends who are in a supporting role.

The main purpose of the groups is to provide those who attend a space to meet with other sufferers/carers to share their experiences and coping strategies. Our group aim is to ease isolation by offering inclusion to men or women who attend.

Our groups offer:
•A safe and welcoming environment where sufferers/carers can share and discuss their experiences.
•Monthly meetings with other sufferers/carers to offer and receive peer support.
•Information and advice on eating disorders to enable a better understanding of symptoms.
•Gateways to support including counselling, other therapies and support groups and treatment e.g. Coastal West Sussex Eating Disorders Service.

Any individual affected by eating disorders and problem eating over the age of eighteen from the coastal West Sussex area is able to attend the groups. Those wishing to attend are welcome to be part of the Peer Support group whether or not they are currently receiving support such as counselling or other therapies.
