WHAT IS THE PROJECT ABOUT?

Butterfly is in the process of developing a Body Esteem Education Project for Males.

This exciting project will develop an innovative and engaging school prevention focused education resource that aims to raise awareness about the modifiable risk and protective factors that underpin body dissatisfaction and eating disorders in males. This project hopes to encourage help seeking by reducing stigma around these issues.
