MGEDT is a charitable organization that provides resources to men struggling with eating disorders. Founder Sam Thomas created this community for the 10 to 25 percent of eating disorder sufferers who are male.
This volunteer organization based out of England aims to bridge the gap between professional care and self-help with regard to eating disorder recovery. Resources include peer support, drop-in sessions, and online materials.
First Steps is Derbyshire’s only eating disorder charity. This organization supports people all over Derbyshire and the surrounding areas who are affected by eating difficulties and disorders, including parents, partners, and families. There is no criteria to access support, including age or diagnosis. First Steps also offers services at both the University of Nottingham and Nottingham Trent University.
Many of the staff and volunteers at First Steps have had personal experience with eating disorders, either as a sufferer or as a loved one, and food no longer controls their everyday lives. First Steps offers a friendly and non-judgmental atmosphere for anyone who is having difficulties with food-related issues.
Support options include, but are not limited to, recovery and self-help groups, Skills for Carers workshops, online support, dramatherapy, compulsive overexercise support, and private support packages. We also offer CPD training, self-esteem and body image workshops in schools, and have many volunteer opportunities.
