 The Looking Glass Residence program provides specialized care and treatment to youth and young adults suffering from eating disorders in British Columbia. The new location in Vancouver provides residents with access to more community supports, resources and therapeutic activities.

The grand opening was celebrated with physicians, staff, volunteers, and neighbours, who all had the opportunity to explore the home that was generously donated by a donor family of the Looking Glass Foundation.

Guests heard from speakers Jane Thornthwaite, Parliamentary Secretary for Child Mental Health and Anti-bullying, Sarah Bell, Executive Director for Children’s and Women’s Mental Health, Stacey Huget, Executive Director for the Looking Glass Foundation, and a former resident of the Looking Glass Residence who shared her experience living with an eating disorder and her journey to recovery.

About the Looking Glass Residence:

Care and treatment at the Looking Glass Residence is for young people, aged 17-24, who have participated in community-based eating disorder programs or services, or are transitioning from specialized inpatient care. Residents who are medically stable but require intensive, structured therapeutic support to break the cycle of their eating disorder are treated at the live-in program. The care team takes a holistic approach to treatment, combining group and family therapy, meal support and education, guided recreation and leisure activities, and psychiatric, pharmaceutical and medical care.
