We aren't talking about body images yet in our class but this program will be relevant to our work later, and to your lives and the lives of your students.

We will watch one of Jean Kilbourne's videos in our class, too, but not this one.

I hope you will be able to take advantage of these events.

Did you know…

The peak onset of eating disorders occurs during puberty and the late
teen/early adult years.

At least 10 million females and 1 million males in the U.S. are battling
anorexia and bulimia, while another million more suffer from binge
eating disorder.

Eating disorders are a silent epidemic with devastating and
life-threatening consequences. Anorexia has the highest mortality rate
of any mental illness.

Many of our students struggle with eating disorders and the negative
self esteem that is part of this issue. Please help the Counseling
Center reach out to our students as we raise awareness and encourage
treatment for those that are in need of support. Our goal is to
challenge the misperceptions that encourage disordered eating and to
help our students develop a more positive sense of self. Please refer
your students to the following programs. Extra credit slips will be made
available at each workshop. A flyer of events is attached that you may
forward onto students and/or print and post in your department. Thanks
for all you do to promote wellness within our campus community!
