Workshops and events.

Collaboration in the eating disorder community is important to us.

By hosting regular events, webinars, workshops and discussions, online and in person, we strive to extend our hope in recovery outside the walls of our London centre. We talk with a variety of people sharing their experiences and expertise of eating disorders, ranging from those with lived experience of eating disorders; health care professionals; families and carers; and our specialist clinical team.

Community is at the heart of Orri and all are welcome.

So you don’t miss out, you can keep updated with our calendar of events below, or you can sign up to our newsletter.

Members of Orri’s specialist team will explore and challenge the biases that exist in mental health services, particularly in eating disorders treatment, and will offer insight into how to demonstrate practice that is inclusive for all.

The team will explore the approach to recognising and treating eating disorders in the Black Community, considering how myths and stigmas in eating disorder diagnosis limit those approaching treatment.

Orri is committed to a non-discriminatory approach in the healthcare service and respects and values diverse life experiences and heritages, striving to ensure that all voices are valued and heard.
