One of the most important actions you can take when you are supporting a love one who has been diagnosed with an eating disorder is to educate yourself. The more educated and informed you are about the illness, the easier it will be for you to cope, understand and communicate with your love one. Because of the importance of education, the Foundation has developed an extensive library of books and brochures.
Normally we encourage the public to drop by the Foundation to take advantage of these free loaner materials, however due to COVID-19 restrictions we ask that you contact the office to make an appointment to visit the Resource Centre.
We are pleased to announce that the Eating Disorder Foundation of NL in collaboration with the NL Public Libraries now have an eLibrary collection of Eating Disorders Resources available through the NL Public Libraries website. All titles are also available in print.
