We Can internet-based skills training for carers of people with anorexia

We Can is an internet-based skills training programme developed for carers of people with anorexia by experts in the treatment of eating disorders together with a carer and a former patient. We Can teaches carers skills to help them support the person with anorexia they care for and it also addresses carers' own needs.

  • Not currently suffering from an Eating Disorder themselves
