TEDD - The Eating Disorder Discussion Group




TEDD stands for The Eating Disorders Discussion Group. It is a networking, ideas and discussion group for anyone in Scotland with a personal or professional interest in eating disorders.


A few years ago, a group of people in Scotland became interested in starting a network group. This was for anyone interested in eating disorders, in a personal or professional capacity, from different parts of Scotland, who wished to network, meet for discussions, gatherings, focus groups, social activities, events and lots more.


Such a group started in 2013 and hosted various events and gatherings: large networking afternoon (Glasgow); social outing to the theatre (Edinburgh); discussion groups (Edinburgh, Glasgow and Stirling); film screening (Glasgow) and lots more! It was known by a different name then.


The group is now known as TEDD. We hope to start re-introducing this soon. If you're interested in getting involved as a member, co-ordinator, or volunteer, please do get in touch!


''Creating a better world requires teamwork, partnerships and collaboration. This means....we must embrace the benefits of co-operating with one another'.
