About

This venture – a totally new program of a successful existing project – will create a network of supportive meetings, moderated by professional psychologists, for the families of young women suffering from eating disorders. The aim of the project is to expand the circle of care from simply focusing on the sufferers of the disorder themselves to the families, who are deeply affected by the problem and are also a critical part of the solution. Liana and Kristina founded the initial venture – Project HEAL – and have experienced strong success, but noted the real need for a new program focusing on families. Liana, Kristina, and Ashley all suffered from eating disorders themselves, and have since recovered and devoted themselves to showing a pathway to healing for young women like them.
