BANA wanted to give a special shout out to our friends at #AM800CLKW #LynnMartin and #ArmsBumanlag for taking the time out of their day to talk to us about Eating Disorder Awareness Week and joining our #BeYourSelfie project.
With eating disorders having a higher mortality rate than any other mental health condition, BANA and Teen Health WECHC are marking Eating Disorders Awareness Week 2017 with a new campaign encouraging people to be themselves through our “BeYourSELFIE” project.
In today’s technological age, all too often we are subjected to, or participate in, the editing of photos to “enhance”, “filter” or “modify” the end result into preconceived images of what the “ideal” body image should be.
We think that being yourself is beautiful and this should be celebrated. Though the use of a standard Polaroid camera, No Filters, No Editing, we’ll be asking people to share who they are in the moment and truly – Be Yourself.
