Coffee Catch Ups

Since May 2018, we have been organising monthly cafe meet-ups held at different locations around South Devon.

The focus of these meet-ups is to socialise, meet new people and catch up with friends. Nothing is off-limits, but anyone wanting support for struggles with their mental health and eating disorder or for their role as a carer should try to come to one of the support groups instead (see group pages for dates) while the coffee catch ups are just for fun.

In our experience, even visiting a cafe for a drink can be scary when in the grip of an eating disorder. We hope that by coming together with a shared understanding of how difficult it can be will give everyone an easier way to socialise and have fun.

Our first meeting was in Paignton on Saturday May 5th 2018. We made it through the crowds of the BMAD festival and had a lovely time. Thank you to all who came and made it such a success, and thank you Amy for suggesting the Lion’s Monocle for the venue.
