Conversation cards to bridge the isolation.
Living with an eating disorder can be a lonely, isolating experience. This beautiful, highly-visual tool aims to support young people and adults to bridge the isolation by sharing their experience with family, friends, teachers, counsellors, and other health professionals.

These cards can be used to describe other ‘shadowy companions’ like addiction, depression and anxiety.
