Are you worried about a loved one?

It can be frightening to bring up the subject, especially if it is the first time you express these concerns to them. However, the first step to recovery takes courage and openness. At The Bridge we aim to help patients develop a positive mental and physical well being, and become resilient to challenges. We encourage children and adults to develop a healthy relationship to food, their body and their mind.
