We are proud to announce that Félix-Antoine Tremblay, comedian and spokesman for ANEB, is preparing another Mister ANEB event. This will be the third year that ANEB hosts the much-anticipated fashion show, featuring the creations of the artist’s Quebec company, Monsieur Phoénix. Mister ANEB: The Cabaret will take place at Théâtre Plaza on Friday, October 7th at 8:00 PM.
During the course of the evening, the company, which makes bowties and other accessories right here in Quebec, will feature new items from its Fall/Winter collection. They will be presented by an incredible lineup of volunteer Quebec artists (of all ages and body types!) generously supporting the fight against eating disorders. Amongst the women featured will be Saskiat Thuot, Clodine Desrochers, Katherine Levac, Bianca Gervais, Julianne Côté, Marie-Soleil Dion, Valérie Chevalier, Debbie Lynch-White, Pénélope McQuade, Mariepier Morin and Vanessa Pilon. Participating male models will include Joël Legendre, Pier-Luc Funk, Alex Perron, Daniel Parent, Jean-Philippe Wauthier, François Imbeau-Dulac, Joey Scarpellino, Herby Moreau, Karl Walcott, Félix-Antoine Tremblay and Patrick Langlois.
Regular-priced tickets cost $85 and include the entrance fee for the evening, a Mister ANEB bowtie, three alcoholic drinks, and finger food. All funds raised during the evening will go to ANEB. A set of VIP tickets for a table of four costs $600 and includes four entrance fees, four Mister ANEB bowties, two bottles of sparkling wine Parès Balta private finger food service and an open bar.
Profits from the sales of Mister ANEB bowties will benefit ANEB and will be available for a year.

Recently, a girl suffering from an eating disorder who is currently in the recovery process (she prefers to remain anonymous) created an online petition against the weighing in physical education classes. Including ANEB, many associations who are specialised in eating disorders are adamant: group weighing does not belong in schools. The damage it can cause amongst young people (unhealthy eating behaviours, stigmatization and bullying related to weight) is way too serious.
For these reasons, ANEB supports this girl’s courageous gesture and wants to congratulate her for her initiative. We encourage you to sing the petition.
ANEB is pleased to invite you to its annual general assembly, which will take place on next Wednesday, September 21st at 6:30 PM. The assembly will be held at the Ste-Justine University Hospital in Montreal, at 3175 Côte-Ste-Catherine, in the Justine-Lacoste-Beaubien amphitheatre – Floor A, Block 9.
We encourage you to contact ANEB at our help and reference line at 514-630-0907 (for Montreal residents) or toll free at 1-800-630-0907 (outside of Montreal) to register. You can also confirm your presence by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
A public event will follow the assembly at 8:00 PM. Keep checking our website or our info-letter in the next few weeks for more details about the event’s theme and guests.

For someone who suffers from an eating disorder, taking the first steps toward getting help can be very distressing. The unknown, the fear of their loved ones’ reaction, the perception that they have support or not, feelings of shame, fears regarding the services… these first steps toward care and treatment can seem insuperable.
In a discussion with the audience, the stakes and the challenges related to the therapeutic care of people touched by an eating disorder will be addressed, as well as the advances in research and in the methods that are used.
*Registration required. Please book your place at the following email address: email@example.com or by phone at 514-630-0907 (Montreal) or 1-800-630-0907 (toll free, elsewhere in Quebec).
Please note that due to the Thanksgiving Holiday on October 10th, 2016, the phone help line service and support groups will not be available

ANEB thanks you for your understanding.
ANEB Québec is currently developing a publicity committee to promote its services. The vast majority of our activities takes place in Montreal and the surrounding areas. A lack of specialised resources in eating disorders has increased our desire to expand our services across Quebec so as to achieve greater visibility and to help more people.
ANEB Quebec is looking for volunteers who would like to take part in this committee! More specifically, we’re looking for people to help out in Gatineau, the North Shore and Trois-Rivières. In order to publicise our organisation in these regions, volunteers will need to promote ANEB’s services by distributing promotional material (pamphlets, posters, cards, etc.) in different places, animating kiosks, and sharing useful information with professionals and many other people!>/
Your help would be greatly appreciated!
Are you interested in getting involved with the publicity committee?
