Advocacy/health system reform services description
Teen Talk is a Youth Health Education Program part of Klinic Community Health. We provide services for youth from a harm reduction, prevention education perspective. We focus on sexuality, reproductive health, body image, substance use awareness, mental health, diversity and anti-violence issues. We adhere to the belief that by providing youth with accurate, non-judgmental information they can make healthier decisions and choices for themselves.
Healthy lifestyle activities and programs description
Body Image: This workshop promotes healthy body image and helps youth to shift their beliefs about what an "ideal" body is. By looking at how the media body-discriminates as well as common attitudes and beliefs about body size, youth will explore how to feel great in the body that they have and love themselves for who they are. Youth will also explore the link between a negative body image and unhealthy behaviors such as disordered eating and over-exercising, sexual risk-taking, low self-esteem and depression. A final activity normalizes that healthy bodies come in every size and that a part of body pride relies on youth helping other youth to feel great too.
