Our next Bucks Big Chat is on 29th February 2024, during Eating Disorders Awareness Week (28th Feb to 3rd March).
The event, via Zoom, is aimed at parents and people who work with children and young people. We’re delighted that Tessa Peters will be giving a talk about Lived Experience with Eating Disorders.
Tessa has experienced body image issues since she was a young child, which left her feeling alone and misunderstood. She has since founded a charity, Been There, which provides support to help people cope with body image issues.

It would be great to get conversations started with family, friends and colleagues about how stigma can make us feel and ways in which we think we can challenge negative attitudes.
Free Anti-Stigma Resources for Bucks Schools
Bucks Mind’s Children and Young People Team has created some Champion the Change resources that aim to encourage children, parents and school staff to start conversations to help identify and challenge stigma. We have different activities to suit the different age groups, such as guided workshops and videos. If your own children or a relative’s/friend’s children attend a Bucks school, please ask their school to sign up.
