Helping rangatahi in Aotearoa to feel at home in their bodies, and to know the true value of themselves.
Our school-based programmes are our newest initiative, working with young people at their most vulnerable age for developing disordered eating. These programmes are designed to help kids develop a healthy and healing relationship with food, body, and mind. Like our other workshops, they are based on the evidence-based frameworks of Health At Every Size (HAES), Intuitive Eating, Te Whare Tapa Whā and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT).
The initial results of the pilot have been incredibly positive, and we have seen fantastic increases in self-confidence, body image, and resilience. Here's hoping this is just the beginning!
We are currently looking for more intermediate schools to take part in this pilot programme. If you are interested in bringing an Āhei programme to your school, please reach out and let us know.
