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
Around 50% of young Australians aged 12 – 18 said their body image had stopped them to some extent from going to school, focusing on schoolwork and raising their hand in class.
We offer a series of engaging and educational presentations directly to students from year 5 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.
Butterfly Body Bright
A whole of primary school program to promote positive body image and healthy attitudes and behaviours towards the body, eating and physical activity.
We’ve developed a range of curriculum resources, fact sheets and digital clips to support body image education in schools.
