Founded in November 2012 by McCall Dempsey, Southern Smash was created to fill a silent void in our society. Poor body image and negative self-talk have sadly become a cultural norm. Through its unique and empowering scale smashing event and SmashTALK panel discussions, the Southern Smash program aims to educate the public about eating disorders and empower individuals to celebrate and embrace true beauty and self-love. Join us virtually as we talk all things body image, eating disorders and how to SMASH diet culture and the mental health stigma. We hope to see you there! 

At the Well for Health Promotion, we truly understand the importance of practicing being present and aware of our inner thoughts, feelings and surroundings. We also understand that life circumstances don’t always leave us time to breathe out and relax. Let us help! Stop by to grab a mindfulness jar that will be packed with tools for mindfulness success. We start handing kits out at 12:00 PM and will keep them out until supplies run out. While supplies last.

Happy New Year! The MENtality Project is back this semester with more conversations with campus partners, students and external colleagues on topics related to healthy masculinity. We are kicking off our MENtality Monday series by collaborating with Tulane’s first Body Respect Week! Despite the stereotypes that eating disorders and body image issues only occur in women, about 1 in 3 people struggling is male. Eating disordered behaviors are nearly as common among men as they are among women.
