The New Beacon School is proud to be hosting an Essential Talk for Parents by Natasha Devon MBE, entitled “How to help your child survive in the Modern World.”
This is the inaugural event in The New Beacon Centre, which has only just been completed.
Having recovered form an eating disorder in 2006, Natasha Devon was inspired to create the Body Gossip Education Programme, which aimed to give teenagers practical, confidence-boosting tips. In time, this expanded to encompass mental health and body image, from which the Self-Esteem Team was established in 2012.
In 2015, the Department for Education appointed Ms Devon as its first ever mental health champion for schools, though this role was axed a year later.
Natasha has continued to champion the issues of mental health, body image, financial and academic pressure of the under-21s, much of which is well-documented by the Independent on-line.
