Most Au Pair’s demographics fit the risk group of eating disorders, that’s why we wanted to deal with this complex and sensitive topic during our Mental Health Awareness Month. We will give you insights into the different types of eating disorders, from anorexia nervosa, over bulimia nervosa, to binge-eating disorder. We will also provide Host Families with tips and hints on how to deal with the situation if they suspect their Au Pair is struggling with healthy eating habits.
Here we are on our third week of our mental health awareness month. We hope you have enjoyed reading and learning more about some of the most common issues when it comes to mental health, particularly during the Au Pair program.
Remember, the most important thing is to talk about it! Let’s start a conversation to fight against the stigma of mental health.
