  • The Mentor, Meal Support, Training and Wellbeing Program
    Have you recovered from an eating issue or do you have an eating issue and are you motivated towards recovery? We are currently seeking potential mentors and mentees in the Brisbane, Sunshine Coast, Gold Coast, Ipswich and Darling Downs regions to take part in our peer mentor program.

    The Mentor, Meal Support, Training and Wellbeing Program currently funded by the Queensland Mental Health Commission aims to address the gaps in service delivery for people in the early stages of recovery from eating issues.  Through a network of trained mentors with lived experience of recovery from eating issues, the program not only provides out of hours and non-scheduled emotional and general social support to people in early recovery from an eating issue but also allows people who are recovered to ‘give back’ to the community by supporting others on their journey of recovery.

  • Research

Feedback


Here’s what Bonnie, someone who has used our service, says how we made a difference to her:

“Isis comes from the other side of the issue in terms of dealing with the deeper underlying issues and not being so prescribed - it didn’t promote a sense of illness or focus too much on food like other programs have.

Before Isis I felt shame and a sense of absolute hopelessness but, day by day, I feel relieved of the burden associated with the eating issue…I feel much stronger and don’t feel as isolated or that I’m abnormal…I’m more positive and hopeful than I have been for a long, long time.”
