Blue School day

On World Ocean Day, Help Images joined the “Blue School” (Ministry of the Sea) and produced a film reminding us why the sea is so missed!

This film is just a drop from the authentic ocean of fantastic contributions that we received from the incredible community “Escola Azul” spread across Portuguese schools.

Anorexia is not a fad

Our film aims at children, teenagers, and their families, and it was produced to alert and demystify Anorexia Nervosa: the eating disorder with the highest mortality rate. This film intends to bring awareness to the behaviours associated with this disorder: to promote empathy and understanding, encourage well-being and healthy lifestyles.

When approaching this topic, we want to promote awareness and social responsibility in general. Anorexia Nervosa is a serious mental health condition difficult to understand and recognize. An early diagnosis is crucial for a quick recovery. The faster the return to an adaptive trajectory, the less crystallized the problematic behaviour becomes.

 Thanks to this film we have the opportunity to approach Anorexia Nervosa in school communities through visual media, stimulating an enlightening and prejudice-free debate afterward. Clarifying this topic, especially amongst teens and their families, will increase understanding and support amongst peers and the early identification of Eating and Ingestion Disorders.
