Ready to get outside, soak up some spring sunshine, and get your hands dirty?
The Emily Program’s Gardening Club is gearing up for another season of growing! Our vegetable and herb gardens are located at our St. Paul (2265 Como) location near the south side of the building.
The Emily Program's St. Louis Park office now has walk-in hours available to Emily Program clients.
Our Walk-in and Referral Service is available to all Emily Program clients who have been through the complete intake process, are over age 18, and in urgent need of crisis intervention or support. In other words, when your primary therapist is not available in a timely manner or while you are awaiting a primary therapist (after intake evaluation). This service is currently only available at our St. Louis Park location.

In many instances eating disorders and body image issues are intimately linked. For manyyoga spring groups people who have an eating disorder, anxiety, worry, and pre-occupation with body image are also a part of their struggle. Recognizing this link and working on one’s body image can play a critical role in recovery from an eating disorder.
February 27 – March 2, 2012
Eating disorders are serious, life-threatening illnesses that have psychological, biological, and sociocultural causes. The good news is that prevention and recovery are possible.
The goal of National Eating Disorders Awareness Week is to spread awareness of eating disorders and body image issues while reducing the stigma surrounding them. This year, The Emily Program Foundation has partnered with universities in the Twin Cities and Duluth for a number of FREE events across the state in observance and celebration of eating disorder awareness.
A new cycle of the 10-week Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, & Queer (LGBTQ) Group begins next week. This thoughtful and supportive group is designed for clients who consider themselves gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, and queer as well as for clients who are questioning or exploring their sexual orientation and/or gender identity.
