Help Produce an Online Film To Educate about Eating Disorders!

For five years that the NORMAL In Schools national nonprofit has been delivering its live programming to educate children and families in at-risk, public AND private schools, in medical facilities and in theatre festivals worldwide about the facts relating to eating disorders and mental illness. Last year we were awarded the 2010 Champion in Women’s Health Award by The Wisconsin Women’s Health Foundation. Most notably, our program assisted teenage patients into treatment for eating disorders and related illnesses due to the universal appeal of the gripping rock musical on which our program is based, and the shame-breaking talkback panel with expert clinicians and people in recovery.

As a result of NIS’s ongoing success, in Fall 2010 we are partnering with NEDA, BEDA and top medical experts to produce a cutting-edge, online film version of our award-winning program. The NIS Online Educational Program will be comprised of three 40-minute segments compiled into an online portal so individuals can log in and experience the award-winning program instantly. It will target a worldwide audience via internet release and will expand the program’s reach beyond students and educators to touch patients in recovery, families, clinicians and athletic teams.
