Getting Involved with ECM

Eating Concerns Mentors at UNH

Research shows that students are more receptive and learn better from informed, educated peers. Acquiring knowledge, skills and confidence helps Eating Concerns Mentors (ECM) members enhance their own knowledge, attitudes and beliefs related to eating concern and body image topics.

What Students Are Saying 

  • "Being a member and leader of the Eating Concerns Mentors (ECM) has helped me grow as an individual, and has provided me with skills vital to my professional career. I have learned so much about myself and my passions, while also being able to help students on campus who are struggling with body image issues. One of my favorite aspects of being an ECM is educating students about "Fat-Talk" during Fat Talk Free Week in October. I feel blessed to be a part of such an amazing, inspiring group!" 
  • "ECM has given me the opportunity to inspire students that they don't need to live up to the media's expectation of what beauty is, we're changing the culture of this campus and its amazing to be part of such a positive influence." 

Expectations 

  • New members will be expected to fully participate with the group starting October 2016 
  • Attend weekly meetings.
  • PLUS additional duties outside of meetings, including a mandatory training. On average, participants should expect to give a minimum of 2 hours/week to group work/participation, which must be upheld or membership will be revoked (1-hour meetings are included in this estimate).
