ANEB is once again inviting Québec schools to participate in the upcoming #ANEBsockittoed campaign, which will take place on April 5, 2023.
How to participate
It’s simple! If you’re a principal or vice-principal, a teacher or a student activities organizer, just follow these steps:
1. Go to this page to enroll your school here
2. Download the PDF poster for 2023 by clicking here
3. You’ll then have access to:
➜ Content in the form of testimonials and informative videos
➜ Download your school’s kit: explanatory documents, posters and various promotional materials, and sample emails to parents, staff and students
➜ Visuals for your social media pages (see below)
4. Download the printable fact sheet to educate your school community about eating disorders and start the conversation on this important issue. You can distribute it to teachers, staff and professionals who work with your students. You can also post it in the staff room and in places you deem appropriate.
5. On Wednesday, April 5, 2023, create visibility for the movement by wearing your best/silliest/favourite pair of socks! Invite your students to share photos of their socks and to challenge 3 of their friends to do the same, using the hashtag #ANEBsockittoeds and tagging @anebquebec.
Be a proud part of the movement. Be proud to be among those who have the courage to talk openly about eating disorders. Wear your funkiest socks—or even just your favourites—and invite 3 of your contacts to do the same. Use the hashtag #sockittoed and tag @anebquebec.
➜ To make a REAL DIFFERENCE in awareness, treatment and healing of the most underfunded and most fatal mental illness in Canada. It’s an illness that especially affects people at an age when they’re sensitive, influenceable and questioning their identity. It’s these young clients who are likely to turn to ANEB for help.
➜ To make adolescents aware of eating disorders as a MENTAL ILLNESS and to DISMANTLE biases and misconceptions about EDs.
➜ To help ANEB REACH OUT to adolescents at risk as soon as symptoms arise, and GUIDE them through their recovery.
➜ To enable ANEB to continue offering high-quality services, free of charge.
