About Get R.E.A.L.
Get R.E.A.L., “Realistic Expectations and Attitudes for Life,” is an innovative video outreach and prevention program that will be distributed to more 7,000 schools, hospitals and legislative offices in the state of Florida. The program is focused on enhancing self-esteem, promoting positive body image, and preventing eating disorders. By getting back to the basics of taking care of ourselves, interpreting media messages appropriately and embracing overall wellness, H.O.P.E. is striving to provide all age groups —from children through adults — with the tools necessary to ensure a healthy lifestyle. The goal is to eliminate dangerously unattainable and unrealistic standards and encourage everyone to "get real."
In addition, H.O.P.E. has partnered with The Alliance for Eating Disorders Awareness to compile a comprehensive guide for eating disorders treatment providers throughout the state of Florida. Practitioners from all areas of Florida that treat eating disorders will be a part of this professional guide that will be given to schools throughout the state in conjunction with the Get R.E.A.L. Program.
