Request a Recovery Mentor

Thank you for your interest in being mentored!

ANAD’s Recovery Mentorship Program offers free eating disorder support online for those who struggle with eating disorders but are motivated to recover. ANAD mentors are people who have walked the difficult road to recovery from their eating disorder and are recovered for at least 2 years. Mentors support their mentees in their journey as a source of hope, wisdom, and empathy.

  • Mentors and mentees will not meet in person

Additional Information

  • Neither mentors nor mentees will be turned away or denied support due to race, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, etc.
  • The ANAD Recovery Mentorship Program is NOT treatment, but support. It is required that mentees continue professional treatment with their treatment team and view our services as free, peer support to assist them along their journey of recovery. We are not mental health or medical health professionals and do not claim to be so. We expect mentees will follow the advice of those professionals in their life and work.
