Apply to become a peer mentor
EDQ's Peer Mentoring Program (PMP) is a time-limited program. PMP matches individuals wanting support in eating disorder recovery with a person who has a lived experience of recovery.
Applicants are not guaranteed to be considered for the PMP. EDQ reserves the right to refuse any applicant at their discretion. Feedback will be given to participants who are unsuccessful upon request.
All applicants who have completed the application form will be assessed as to their suitability for PMP (whether mentor or mentee) and must complete an interview with a EDQ practitioner.
All mentors must
- Be 18yrs+
- Have been in stable recovery from an eating issue for a minimum of 2 years
- Have the capacity to make a 6 month commitment to a mentoring relationship
- Ideally have a current support team or mix of friendships and interests (e.g. counsellor/therapist/GP/nutritionist/dietician).
- Be able to get a letter from your current (or past) therapist/counsellor stating their support for your application.
