Eating Disorder Support Group
Hosted by the USSU Help Centre, this student-run support group meets weekly to provide support and community to students who live with anorexia, bulimia, binge-eating, and other eating disorders.
This group is open to anyone affected by an eating disorder who would like to discuss issues related to their condition(s) with other students affected by eating disorders. Meetings are currently every Tuesday night at 7pm at the USSU Help Centre (in the tunnel between Place Riel and the Arts Building).
The USSU Help Centre Exam File has over 1000 exams from a wide variety of courses. Students can view them in the Centre or borrow them to photocopy (must bring in a student card to take out exams). The exam file is now even more convenient to use. Files are available in pdf format; students can email the files to themselves by stopping in the Help Centre. The Exam File requires student participation to remain up to date. Students are encouraged to bring in old exams and in exchange will be entered to win a prize.
Mood Disorder Support Group

2) To promote healing through meaningful and cooperative discussions.
