Link to survey:


The BC Mental Health & Substance Use Services is developing a Parent Resource Guide for parents to provide tools, tips, advice, and strategies on how to get through the struggles of having a child with an eating disorder. The uniqueness of this Guide is that it will be written by parents with firsthand experience of having a child struggle with an eating disorder or disordered eating.

We would like to ask parents of a child with an eating disorder to share some of the strategies that you found helpful managing your child's recovery. We will compile the responses that we receive and include them in the Guide. This will be the sister of our already developed resource, “From Survive to Thrive Guide,” which is accessible for free:


Because we rely on the voice of parents, your parent contacts would be a valuable asset for us in developing this resource.  Would you be willing to help us distribute to parents? Perhaps include in your next news article, through social media, etc.  The more parents who can take the survey, the more rich with information and advice the Parent Resource Guide will become to help others.



Thank-you. Please let me know if you have any questions or if you can think of another avenue to distribute this survey.
