Eating disorders do not discriminate.

They impact all genders, ages, sexual orientations, socioeconomic classes, abilities, races, and ethnic backgrounds, with marginalized communities reporting higher incidence and less support.

Our compassionate peer support options are here to help individuals on their healing journey.

Navigating support and treatment options can be challenging and costly.

69% of our program participants report that they are not receiving any other form of eating disorder support, with 75% identifying that they have experienced some sort of barrier when accessing care. The most prevalent reported are:

Lack of Eating Disorder Specialists and Programs
Long Waitlists
Too Costly

To address these gaps, we developed Looking Glass Counselling | Bridge the Gap™: a program that provides unique and critical eating disorder support where none is available, while enabling meaningful practicum experience for counselling students.
