Butterfly prevention programs for schools
Educators see the daily impact of low self-esteem, negative body image and disordered eating on a student’s wellbeing and potential. Butterfly is proud to work with schools to support and enhance existing wellbeing programs and to create environments that support body confidence in children and young people.
Our programs are flexible and mapped to the Australian Curriculum. As trusted experts in the field of body image and eating disorders, we support the whole school community with:
- Engaging presentations to students
- Empowering seminars for parents
- Prevention training for staff on eating disorders and early intervention
1 in 5 students globally say they have missed school because they feel they don’t look good enough and 31% of teenagers are withdrawing from classroom debate because they don’t want to draw attention to the way they look.
We offer a series of engaging and educational presentations directly to students from year 3 up to and including year 12 and in tertiary settings.
Staff professional development
School staff are in excellent position to encourage healthy behaviours, spot the early warning signs and support students in their recovery.
We’ve developed a range of curriculum resources, fact sheets and digital clips to support body image education in schools.
