The Somerset & Wessex Eating Disorders Association, in partnership with Mind in Somerset, have joined together to launch a dedicated eating disorders helpline for the people of Somerset. 
Are you, or is someone you know, experiencing difficulties with eating, weight or body image? Then this helpline dedicated to eating disorders could be for you!
The SWEDA MindLine service is a place to talk about any of these things and more. 

You can expect that the person you speak to will:

  • use active listening skills to hold a space for you to talk about what you are experiencing.
  • answer questions and provide information on eating disorders.
  • explain what help might be available to you or another person with an eating disorder. 
  • signpost people to SWEDA services or help you look at other options if necessary.

The helpline is a service open to anyone affected by an eating disorder. 
Service users can call 0300 330 5464 and expect to speak to a trained volunteer for up to half an hour on each call. 
The SWEDA MindLine is open every Tuesday evening 8pm-11pm and every Sunday from 11am-2pm. Lines are even open throughout the Christmas Period.
“We are delighted to offer this service to people across Somerset and beyond and pleased to be able to work in partnership in this way with Mind as part of the Open Mental Health Project.” explains Paula Blight, Chief Executive at SWEDA.
