Body Pride is a program of the National Eating Disorder Information Centre, Canada’s oldest non-profit organization dedicated to providing information and resources on eating disorders and food and weight preoccupation.
At NEDIC, we know that body-based bullying and a focus on appearance can have harmful effects on youth. That’s why we created Body Pride – an accessible, engaging and interactive program for youth and educators. We have designed workshops that address body-image, self-esteem and critical media literacy, available for in school presentations or online. Body-based bullying affects over 50% of youth, and can be triggering to those at risk for developing eating disorders. By helping school communities develop positive environments that are welcoming of every body, we can work towards making a difference.
