Normal In Schools
May 13, 2010
Normal In Schools is an amazing experience lived through the very real life scenario of a family dealing with a daughter/sister's eating disorder. This powerful musical, followed up by a talk-back with professional medical experts on eating disorders, combines the power of ED education through theater with the clinical expertise necessary to help heal the mind and body.
In addition, the organization is in the process of putting together a DVD of the musical to be used in conjunction with a high school health class curriculum.
There are very deep rooted psychological issues associated with eating disorders and this organization is helping to spread the word that there are many people out there suffering from the same conditions and by becoming aware of the warning signs and working through them with an open mind, great successes can be obtained.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
watching the faces of those who experience NORMAL for the first time and hearing the success stories that come out of seeing the musical and being involved in the talk-back sessions.
