  • ED 101, was an incredibly useful tool for the women of Delta Phi Epsilon during our annual Anorexia Nervosa and Associated Disorders Vigil. Not only is it an extremely informative film, but the personal stories woven throughout the scenes help the viewer to understand and appreciate the true realities of eating disorders. The film served as a wonderful method to introduce the topic of eating disorders to the women in my organization and stimulate a discussion about personal mindfulness and how to maintain a positive body image in a college environment.

  • I have worked with Robyn for almost six years. She has connected our entire District to an array of evidence-based resiliency programs that address serious mental health topics affecting our students. The Preventing Serious Mental Illness professional development programs for school professionals have connected us to many resources to better support students struggling with depression, anxiety, substance use and eating disorders. As a Deputy Superintendent, I know it is crucial that we have a dynamic partner like Mental Fitness who we can trust to bring the most cutting-edge and safe programs into our schools.
