For sporting groups

Butterfly prevention programs for sporting groups

Participating in sports can be great for a child’s physical and mental health. But sometimes being on a team, or in a sport where there is a strong focus on performance, appearance, diet and weight requirements can lead to body dissatisfaction, disordered eating or even an eating disorder.

As trusted experts in the field of body image and eating disorders, we offer programs to sporting groups — young people, their parents and coaching and support staff — which are designed to educate, empower and enable help-seeking. We also tailor programs for national and state-based sporting organisations and their communities.

And we’re also here to support sporting groups with more serious issues though our National Helpline and our other support services.
