Show Your True Colours does Mental Health Week

We at EDOYR have been busy. It's day three of Mental Health Week and we've got a great deal to show for it (literally...see the photos below). On Wednesday May 9, we went to St. Theresa of Lisieux Catholic High School (CHS) in Richmond Hill to take part in their Mental Health Fair. We met with students, teachers, guidance counselors and representatives from other organizations in an attempt to raise mental health awareness.

While we were at the local high school, we also spread information about our Show Your True Colours campaign. Tons of students and teachers expressed their interest and support. We cannot thank you enough.

Check out our Twitter and Facebook pages for more photos of the day's events.

This grade twelve student at St. Theresa of Lisieux CHS in Richmond Hill poses beside our EDOYR booth at the school's Mental Health Fair, organized by the Stomping Out Stigma (SOS) club on campus.

Look at those amazing shirts! EDOYR had a ton of fun at St. Theresa's SOS club's Mental Health Fair.

EDOYR was giving out our gear at St. Theresa! Buttons and bracelets for everyone.

Students, teachers, guidance counselors and the like were stopping by our booth to ask questions about eating disorders and how to get involved with EDOYR. If you're interested in getting involved, e-mail We're ALWAYS looking for new helpers.

A lot of students weren't aware that men could have eating disorders, too. Well, they can! For more information, visit our website.

Three EDOYR reps are wearing their Stomping Out Stigma (SOS) bracelets to support the St. Theresa club!

We loved this banner so much that we had to take a photo. "Live the life you have imagined." So beautiful!

Look at this St. Theresa student showing HER true colours. Notice her green pin? You can show your true colours by taking a photo of yourself and sending it to for a chance to see your face on our Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and blog! Please e-mail us asking for a Photo Consent Form, as well.

This grade twelve student at St. Theresa of Lisieux is also showing her true colours. Thank you for your support!
