EDCT Programs & Events
Families Supporting Families
Families Supporting Families (FSF) seeks to provide a free, peer-facilitated monthly forum of education and support for families, siblings, spouses, partners, and friends of individuals with eating disorders.
Meetings are held on the 1st and 3rd Monday of each month from 7-8 p.m. at the EDCT office, located at 2120 Crestmoor Rd., Ste. 3000, Nashville, TN. The group averages 14 participants per meeting and is co-facilitated by Connie Horton and Kathy Gaston. Kathy and Connie are helping to create FSF groups in states such as Washington and Kentucky, with the assistance of the EDCT Families Supporting Families Facilitator's Training Manual and Guidebook. Families Supporting Families continues to be one of EDCT's most important programs, as it offers families a place to talk with other families about issues related to eating disorders and how these issues affect the family.
More than 45 EDCT members have been trained to speak about eating disorders, body image, and nutrition, among other topics. These presentations are typically free-of-charge and open to the community.
