Eating Disorders in Student Services programme extended


September 22nd, 2017

First Steps Eating Disorders in Student Services (EDISS) is set to continue supporting students at the University of Nottingham and Nottingham Trent University, after the Nottingham Clinical Commissioning Group extended the duration of its support.

First Steps is a charity for people who are affected by eating difficulties and disorders. It offers a friendly and non-judgmental atmosphere for anyone who is having difficulties with food related issues. Over the last year the charity supported 415 individuals to enable them to continue with their studies.

Students can access First Step’s support in several ways, such as counselling, drop in sessions, peer support, groups and online/Skype. First Steps also encourages students to get involved through volunteering and student placements.

Visit the First Steps website to find out more.
