Counseling for Disordered Eating
 

People with disordered eating, or eating disorders, can come in any shape or size. 

Make an Appointment »
We have a team of health care providers here to help if you're struggling with your eating habits or your relationship with food. For more information, call Counseling & Psychiatry at 803-777-5223.

Meal time can be very stressful for a person with a poor relationship with food. Providing meal support as part of treatment has been shown to improve disordered eating outcomes. The Meal Support Group surrounds students with Registered Dietitians and Mental Health professionals to provide emotional support during meal times. This group is focused specifically on helping students appropriately follow their meal plans and decrease behaviors that sabotage eating and recovery. Facilitators of this group will eat snacks alongside students to encourage appropriate food intake and provide post meal support. Through this group, students will be empowered to complete meals and snacks without engaging in inappropriate compensatory behaviors. 

If you are interested in learning more about this group please call the HCI front desk at 803-777-8283.
