National Eating Disorders Awareness Week

Agenda | Thu, February 28 @ 12:00 pm - 03:00 am

 

The Andrews Univesity Counseling & Testing Center is celebrating the National Eating Disorders Awareness Week with an art exhibition and interactive activities on Thursday, February 28th, 2013, from 12pm-3pm at the Campus Center. Our theme is "Celebrating Every Body." We want to promote a healthy body image and raise awareness about the impact of eating disorders among college students nationwide. 
 
Andrews University students are invited to submit works of art that reflect the theme "Celebrating Every Body." A panel of counselors will select pieces to be exhibited at the Campus Center during our Awareness Event and will award prices to the three pieces that best represent this theme (Amazon.com gift cards for $75, $50, and $25, respectively). Please, visit andrews.edu/ctcenter for more information about how to submit your work of art.
 
We’ll have a “Message Board” where the AU community can post messages of acceptance and encouragement. The Counseling and Testing Center will have information about eating disorders and where to seek help and will be offering confidential in-person screenings. Also, students can access an anonymous screening online at http://www.mentalhealthscreening.org/screening/andrews
 
Come, participate, and help in promoting a healthy body image and greater awareness about eating disorders in our community.
