Professional Facilitator for Mental Health Support Groups

Job Summary:

Nature and Scope:

Thanks to funding from the Ministry of Health, Addiction and Mental Health Branch, the Eating Disorder Support Network of Alberta (EDSNA) is able to provide low-cost support groups throughout the year for people both directly and indirectly affected by eating disorders. At this time, EDSNA is looking for more professionals to join as contracted facilitators to help us offer these support groups for clients with eating disorders, as well as their parents, friends, family, and other loved ones.

These support groups are sub-clinical. Participants can expect to receive information, coping strategies, and peer support from participating in such groups.  EDSNA aims to create validating group experience, rooted in the belief that everyone has the wisdom to determine the best route for themselves to recovery. Groups are a place of mutual respect, open communication and safety; a place where the participant is surrounded by people who ‘get it’ and the facilitator plays an important role but is not the only teacher in the room.

Please note: EDSNA provides professionally facilitated support groups - not group therapy.

Programs by EDSNA are:
