The Eating Disorders Discussion Group (TEDD)

The TEDD Group is a networking, ideas, and discussion group for anyone in Scotland with a personal or professional interest in eating disorders. A few years ago, a small group of people in Scotland became interested in starting a network/group for people interested in eating disorders: whether they have worked/volunteered in eating disorders; have maybe 'recovered'; have personal experience of an eating disorder; family/ friends of someone with experience of an eating disorder; professionals; counsellors and psychotherapists; and anyone else with an interest in eating disorders. It would be a group of people from different parts of Scotland who would like to network with each other and meet for discussions, gatherings, focus groups, social activities, events, the sharing of experiences and information and lots more.


Such a group did start and we have had various events and gatherings, including a large networking afternoon in Glasgow; a social outing to see a theatre performance in Edinburgh; various discussion groups in Edinburgh, Glasgow and Stirling; a film screening in Glasgow and lots more! It was known then as the Eating Disorders Community Interest Network Scotland. The group had a break in Spring 2015 and has now re-branded and is part of Glasgow Centre for Eating Disorders. The group is now known as TEDD Group (The Eating Disorders Discussion Group) and we have some new (and previous) members, some new planning group members and new ideas for upcoming events.
