EATING DISORDERS VICTORIA: BODY PRIDE PROJECT

Body Pride is a pilot project facilitated by Eating Disorders Victoria that aims to improve the physical and mental health outcomes for LGBTIQ young people in the City of Boroondara.

This three-week program will address self-esteem, body image and increase body awareness for young LGBTIQ people. The sessions are interactive and will include some take home activities.

Body Pride aims to:

1. Provide a safe space for LGBTIQ young people to come together to increase community connection and to build awareness of the needs of this demographic.

2. Increase the knowledge of body image issues for LGBTIQ young people.

3. Grow self-esteem levels of LGBTIQ young people through offering an inclusive group who will build connections and develop new skills.

4. Raise the awareness of the local support available to young people in the Boroondara community by creating partnerships with Boroondara Youth Services and other local based youth agencies.
