Disordered eating and the impacts of these behaviors are experienced in every environment for adolescents. School environments and teachers are two factors in how students experience disordered eating, body-based mistreatment, and support. Strong student-teacher relationships are associated with better adolescent mental health and academic performance. This project looks at how teachers prevent weight based victimization, identify unhealthy eating behaviors, and make their classroom feel safe and inclusive to students.
