Opportunity Description:

Eating Disorders Nova Scotia believes that no one should have to face an eating disorder alone.  We currently offer a range of resources and supports across Nova Scotia, including online chat, online and in-person peer support groups, family peer support groups, and mentoring. Our team of peer mentors draw upon their experience with recovery to support others on their recovery journey, offering non-judgemental support and encouragement. Mentors complete 30+ hours of training, and take part on ongoing development and training. Each mentor is matched with someone seeking support in their recovery. Most mentors meet with their “mentee” a few times a month, either by phone, video-chat, or in person. We are especially interested in hearing from individuals who are: Over the age of 30 Identify as male Have experience with binge eating Are from the BIPOC community Are from the queer community   For more information visit
