About Sheena's Place:

Sheena's Place offers hope and support to individuals, families and friends affected by eating disorders by providing a wide range of professionally facilitated support groups and services. Sheena's Place is committed to inspiring hope, reducing stigma, raising awareness and offering meaningful help and information at all stages of recovery.

Sheena's Place runs a non-residential centre that offers services in a welcoming, non-institutional environment, located in downtown Toronto. Sheena's Place Support Groups, which are guided by a professional, offer individuals the opportunity to help each other in an informal setting with the philosophy that individuals are the experts of their own experience. Body Image Groups use various techniques including gentle physical movement and the exploration of feelings and perceptions to heighten awareness about the connection between mind and body. Skill Building Groups present techniques to cope with feelings, modify behaviours and change circumstances that affect healthy living. Expressive Arts Groups encourage participants to express feelings and release difficult emotions through the various art mediums of painting/drawing, writing, and through musical activities such as singing or the playing of instruments.
