Family Health Team Collaboration

Body Brave has collaborated with the Family Health Team network (Hamilton, Haldimand, and McMaster) to offer a catered online, self-guided program that follows a stepped-care approach called the Recovery Support Program (RSP for short). This program is suitable for individuals aged 14+ in all stages of their eating disorder/ disordered eating recovery.

Hands Up

About this Project

Body Brave’s online Recovery Support Program (RSP) was developed in 2020. It provides access to a suite of self-guided resources that are available to clients after initial contact with Body Brave.  


The RSP includes action plans, automated check-ins, assistance with system navigation, and a database of recorded webinars on a variety of subjects relevant to people struggling with disordered eating or eating disorders. Response to the RSP has been positive, with clients reporting that this rapid online support assists them with motivation to recover and steps to help them plan their recovery journey. Recently, Body Brave entered a collaborative relationship with Eating Disorders Nova Scotia, a charitable organization that has been offering peer support for people with eating disorders for many years. Peer support services are now being offered through the Recovery Support Program, which is hosted on the Careteam platform. This is proving to be a valuable addition for clients. Hamilton Family Health Team and Body Brave have collaborated together to extend the RSP to patients of the Family Health Team in Hamilton, Haldimand, and McMaster.
