MEDA encourages those who are fully recovered* from an eating disorder and those with a mental health background to consider becoming a coleader for one of MEDA’s support groups.

Clinical Coleader Requirements:

  • Be in at least the 2nd year of clinical training in a Master’s or PsyD Program
  • Completed a group dynamics course at the graduate level
  • Commit to observing MEDA groups prior to volunteering
  • Attend group supervision 4 times every year

Recovered Coleader Requirements:

  • Write a personal story of recovery. If interested, the completed story can lead to becoming a Hope and Inspiration speaker, but this is not required to colead a MEDA support group.
  • Commit to observing MEDA groups prior to volunteering
  • Attend group supervision 4 times every year

*We ask that coleaders have been free of eating disorder behaviors for at least one full year.

If you meet the above criteria and are interested in becoming a group co-leader, contact Michelle Pierce, Director of Clinical Programming, at MPierce@medainc.org
