#FirstSteps Film Campaign

We have created 4 short films to help prevent the onset or further development of an eating disorder in young people.

Our films aim to;

  • Highlight how a young person’s life can be affected by an eating disorder
  • Identify signs and symptoms of common eating disorders
  • Explore some of the underlying triggers linked to the development of an eating disorder
  • Encourage those with eating distress to seek help at the earliest point
