Australia's first digital body image program for boys!
RESET is a digital education program designed to start a deeper conversation with boys about negative body image and eating disorders. In today's society the pressures on young boys to look and be a certain way are increasing and body dissatisfaction is on the rise.
RESET supports schools and other youth organisations in raising awareness of body image issues, reducing stigma and encouraging help seeking in boys.

Watch the trailer below to see how you can help RESET the conversation!
