  • 6. Friday MorningsThe Friday Morning Adult Support Group has been running since we opened our doors in 1996.Many people have come and gone through the years. Here are two personal stories. My First Time Coming and just getting to Sheena’s Place was very difficult but there was nothing left to do and nowhere else to go. Opening the door and entering, I felt very anxious, ashamed, scared and uncomfortable. The staff made me feel normal, not like a person with an eating disorder. Being in a group session with strangers was uncomfortable because this is such a private battle. After the first time, I felt really drained because facing this monster is an intense, life changing thing. I was glad the first session was over but at the same time I wanted to run away and never go back. Going back the second time was even harder but I forced myself to go. By the third session, things got easier. I felt less Created in the Art Studio at Sheena’s Place ashamed, better, comfortable and more open toJoy and Sadness expressing my feelings.

  • 7. Hope and Support Another question is: “how do you know that Sheena’s Place makes a difference?” In the fall, we piloted new evaluation tools to measure participants’ feelings, motivation, and the effectiveness of our services. Client satisfaction with our services is very high and is correlated with being respectfully treated and the sense of belonging that clients take away from the Sheena’s Place experience. Created by a client from Sheena’s Place Two innovative projects took our help beyond the walls of 87 Spadina Rd. Through funding from CIBC,The two questions everybody asks are: “how we launched an eLearning module for parents andmany people come here” and “how old are the supportive others of people over age 18.
