free online therapy?

hi, my friend recently came forward about struggling with an ED. they believe therapy would help, but thinks that telling their parents wouldn't be helpful (parents most likely won't pay for therapy). i was wondering if anyone knows some free online counseling/therapy resources?

I can suggest the group

I can suggest the group therapies. They really help.


Hi! This may be too late to do any good, but I can recommend X, previously known as X. It's a free chatroom service with certified counselors that can help people talk through things in a safe group setting. I hope this helps!
