MentorCONNECT, the eating disorders mentoring community that I work with, is a global online-based mentoring charity.
Our founding board knew even before we launched MentorCONNECT that sparks were nearly guaranteed to fly once we commenced to combine two loaded words – “recovery” and “internet”.
But we did it anyway. Why?
This brings us to what is possibly the single most explosive, and at times corrosive, “elephant in the room” question that mentoring for eating disorders recovery can generate – “Is the internet a safe place to find recovery support?
The answer (or at least my answer, from my own personal experience with MentorCONNECT) is, under the right set of circumstances, YES.
