Request a Recovery Mentor

Recovery is Real. Your Mentor is Living Proof.

Would you like to get support from someone who understands what you are going through and feeling? ANAD will pair you up with a Recovery Mentor who has recovered from an eating disorder and will be able to help support you on your own recovery journey.

Mentors can be available by phone, email or text. The two of you will decide what method of communication works for both of you, and discuss ways you’d like to be supported.

Mentee Prerequisites:

  1. ANAD mentees must have some level of professional support before joining the program. That support can be a therapist, dietitian, or caring doctor, but there must be a mental health and/or medical professional on their support team. ANAD mentors are volunteers, and cannot be the only support available to the mentee.
  2. Mentees must be 15 years of age or over, with parental permission required for anyone under 18
  3. Mentees must be based in the US. ANAD is a national organization and is unable to serve those outside the United States
