In Personal Recovery Space (PRS), peer support is provided through a private digital forum. Individuals wishing to recover from an eating disorder or disordered eating can receive consistent, personalized support from a pair of trained, compassionate volunteers.
While not intended as therapeutic support, Personal Recovery Space allows people to safely share their experiences, struggles, goals, and hopes at their own pace and without fear of judgement. Many PRS volunteers know first-hand that recovery is possible, and that everyone’s struggles are unique. Our support is for the whole person, not just the eating disorder. PRS might be right for you if you are:
Getting help for the first time
Currently waitlisted for other treatment
Wishing to augment other forms of treatment
Well into recovery but need help with relapse management
Seeking a compassionate listener to help sustain recovery
Who Can Participate
The program is provided at no cost to Canadian residents aged 14 or older.
How It Works
Participants can access their personal forum space 24/7, and their posts will receive an encouraging, supportive message from one of their two peer mentors within 48 hours. PRS has been described as “a journal that writes back to you” and can continue for as many weeks or months as is helpful. PRS forums are hosted on our secure Program Hub and participants choose the display name they would like to use in their forum. This can be the individual’s first name or another name of their choosing.
Writing tonight in my forum has helped. I think I’m going to be okay this evening. Thanks for listening.

"This program has truly been the most positive part of my recovery journey. The volunteers are some of the most amazing individuals who are always willing to listen to what I have in my mind and be there to support me with feedback, self care suggestions and positivity in my life."
