Build healthy body image with “Free To Be”

Free to BE is a positive body image resource which has been developed by The Butterfly Foundation as part of the Australian Government’s body image strategy. This resource is evidence based and has been developed in collaboration with a team of Australian body image experts.

Free to BE is a flexible program for teachers and other educators to implement amongst students and young people in years 3 to 12. It is made up of four modules:

    • Resilience
    • Media
    • Peers
    • Healthy bodies

Each module includes:

    • Lesson plans
    • Activity sheets
    • Digital clips
    • PowerPoint slides

Free To BE encourages discussion and aims to help young people improve their body esteem. All activities have been built based on understanding risk factors for body disatisfaction and prevention research, and all have been thoroughly trialled in the classroom.

You can purchase Free to BE in the online Butterfly shop.
