This month's conversation touched on the following topic areas:

  • The need for family and friends to build a support system/community for themselves as their loved one undergoes treatment
  • 5 suggested pillars of a balanced support system/community: 

(1) one-on-one with a trusted friend
(2) professional support from a counselor
(3) group support
(4) self-care practices
(5) Eating disorder, body image, and health at every size education
