What are eating disorders?
Eating disorders are serious mental illnesses affecting over 1.6 million people in the UK – young people aged 12-20 are most at risk of developing an eating disorder. Beat is the UK’s leading charity supporting people affected by eating disorders and campaigning on their behalf.
FREE PSHE resources
To help schools Beat has developed a FREE comprehensive PSHE classroom activity and awareness week assembly plan available when you register for Sock it to Eating Disorders. We will provide you with resources aimed specifically at KS3, KS4 or KS5 with starter and plenary which will contribute to SEAL targets.
