Blog

This is Sheena’s Place’s Client-Centred Blog that features our recovery stories, art, struggles, poetry, interviews, and many more, which all follow a set of safe space guidelines. We recognize that everyone is at a different place in their recovery. Food, weight, dieting, calories, specific eating disordered behaviours, or exercise behaviours can often be triggering, and are therefore not published on this blog. To submit your work, please email Kmccarthy@sheenasplace.org and read about Sheena’s Place’s blog moderator, Kira, here.
