The St. Cloud Hospital Behavioral Health Clinic is offering a Family and Friends Support Group for Eating Disorders from 4:30-6 p.m. the first Thursday of the month at CentraCare Health Plaza in the Leonard, Street and Deinard room.

There will be no support group in July. Groups are led by a licensed psychologist or registered dietitian and provide support through education and sharing to friends and family of individuals with eating disorders. Participants will learn tips for making mealtimes less stressful, how to respond to food and body image struggles and what to say or not

to say.

Each month different topics will be explored. This month's session will highlight the Minnesota Semistarvation Experiment, which found that individuals with eating disorders have thoughts and behaviors similar to those of men who experienced semi-starvation.

There is no cost to attend. For more information, please call Bette Bakke, PhD, LP, at (320) 229-4918.
