Vancouver Island Voices for Eating Disorders had its roots in the Victoria Eating Disorder Peer Support Group that has been running in Victoria since 2015. Some of issues and concerns that we encountered in group led us to the development of VIVED, which has grown beyond the peer support group. The two are now separate entities.
We want to keep a dialogue about eating disorders and mental health issues ongoing. We want to spread awareness and create partnerships that help us improve the lives of those struggling with eating disorders.
VIVED is registered as an official non-profit society in B.C. as of September 2018.
