We've got SPIRIT, how 'bout you?!

Hi BASE Families,

Wow, what a wild week. Our department has loved participating in Spirit Week with the students this week and attended the BASE Blast Off this past Thursday. We also had a great evening meeting some of our BASE Families at Back-to-School Night. As always, we are here to support your students in their mental, emotional, academic, and post-secondary success.

Highlight: NEDA eating disorders help

Get help HERE.

"The National Eating Disorders Association (NEDA) is the largest nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting individuals and families affected by eating disorders. NEDA supports individuals and families affected by eating disorders, and serves as a catalyst for prevention, cures and access to quality care."

BASE's Counseling Department has had an influx of concerns related to body image and disordered eating. We wanted to share a resource for families and students to seek help for these concerns. The link above will take you to their page with ways to contact NEDA.
