My Body My Way free online resources launched

18th September 2018

Penumbra is developing a range of educational resources to promote positive mental health in children and young people.

Piloted in North Ayrshire, the My Body My Way programme is suitable for primary school children aged 9-11 and explores what body image is, explains what influences our body image and promotes positive body image and wellbeing.

The free resources fit the Curriculum for Excellence and GIRFEC approach to wellbeing. They include a comprehensive workshop plan for facilitators, children’s workbook and parent’s guide.

Penumbra’s CEO Nigel Henderson said:

We are bombarded from an early age with images of the ‘so called’ perfect body in the media and social media. Often these images have been edited or airbrushed and therefore do not represent reality. It is so important that children feel confident about themselves and their bodies. We are all unique which is what makes the world a fascinating place. Therefore in 2018, the Scottish year of young people, we are delighted to make this important resource freely available.
