Community Education

“Thank you from the bottom of my heart for taking part…and helping us make this a successful event. Many thanks to (the two Hopewell volunteers) who were patient, flexible, understanding and amazing!! On behalf of (the school’s) girls and staff, a heartfelt thank you. We hope to have you back next year.”

In our Community Education program we offer two presentations: Celebrate EveryBody and Talking about Eating Disorders. We have offered presentations to schools (elementary, secondary and post-secondary), youth organizations, support/frontline staff groups, and parents.

Talking About Eating Disorders

In our Talking About Eating Disorders presentation we discuss what eating disorders are, causes, signs, and how to support someone if you think they may be struggling with an eating disorder. This presentation is designed for an audience of people who may be in supportive roles e.g. teachers, nurse practitioners, support/front-line staff.

We do not offer this presentation to students, youth or other client groups.

Hopewell Display

We have a display board with information about eating disorders, body image and Hopewell. If you would to request a Community Education volunteer attend an event with our display board, please contact

"This self-help group has been a really important step in my recovery.”

“This binge eating group helps me save a small piece of me every week and it’s offering me the opportunity to feel safe and loved.”

“I had wanted support in a group setting for many years, and finally got it. I hope this support community continues to grow and touch others lives like it did mine.”
