NORMAL is a national nonprofit that educates about eating disorders, self-esteem and body image through arts and mindfulness programs.
We specialize in providing high quality arts and mindfulness educational programming (films, curricula and live events) for the eating disorders, nutrition, mental health, self-esteem and body image communities as well as in schools and universities and graduate school programs worldwide.
We believe it is important to educate in diverse communities as issues of eating disorders, self-esteem and mental health affect children from all backgrounds. In addition, we feel it is crucial to empower youth with healthy nutrition, healthy coping and wellness programs to enhance their stress management and self-care skills.
NORMAL prides itself in collaborating with those listed below to safely create our array of programs that educate about eating disorders, body image, self-esteem and wellness through arts and mindfulness:
