Healthy Mind, Healthy Body is an excellent program free from stereotypes and includes many workshops for professional health workers and school educators. These workshops are for both elementary and high school students. They are a great way to start the discussion on two major issues facing young people: weight-related issues and the relationship between body image and beauty standards. Each workshop can be downloaded for free in PDF and includes a comprehensive guide on how to use it.
