Recovery Raves 

Recovery Raves is an initiative of the Isis Mentor and Meal Support Training and Wellbeing Programme which incorporates the Peer Mentor Program (PMP)designed to complement other types of therapeutic care for people with eating issues. PMP links people motivated towards recovery with mentors in recovery for a 6 month period and supports mentors and mentees throughout this period with regular opportunities to connect and review their experience. 

Recovery Raves are community led speaker events that bring people together to share information, skills and topics of interest that encourage, inspire and support wellbeing and those recovering from eating issues.
