The start of a new school year often brings excitement with a return to daily routines and increased social interaction; however, coming out of a pandemic poses added obstacles for students, some of which may continue to participate in virtual learning.
Navigating back-to-school challenges becomes heightened for those in recovery from an eating disorder, and even more so for those struggling with a co-morbid condition such as substance use. This webinar will acknowledge these struggles as well as discuss how to identify and reduce risky behavior. Attendees will be provided with resources to guide their recovery and learn where to get further support if needed.
