School Talks & Resources

Information For Teachers and Youth Workers

The majority of eating disorders emerge during the teenage years when body image and self-esteem can be particularly vulnerable to outside influences.

For this reason, Bodywhys strives to work with teachers and students to provide an understanding of eating disorders, as well as promoting positive body image amongst young people.

Bodywhys School Talks

The ‘Be Body Positive’ schools programme is delivered to class groups in the school setting and is suitable for students from 2nd year to 6th year.

The programme runs for 70-80 minutes and includes information about eating disorders, self-esteem, and media influence on body image.

Please note: There is no charge for the ‘Be Body Positive’ programme (as a charity organisation we can accept donations).

You can download a copy of the school talks application form here.

Completed forms can be emailed to, or posted to Bodywhys head office.

For more information on our school talks service please contact our Youth Development Officer.
