Body image – Tip 1

💚 Throughout #MentalHealthAwarenessWeek 2019 we will be sharing Mental Health Foundation‘s: ‘Body image – tips for you’

💡There are some actions that we can take to improve how we feel about our bodies and help us to protect, promote and maintain a positive body image throughout our lives.

🔸Tip 1: If your body image is a significant cause of stress, or if you’re being bullied about how your body looks, consider talking to a friend, a trusted adult or a health professional.

🔹It’s especially important to do this if you’re feeling any pressure to make drastic decisions – for instance, having cosmetic surgery, starting extreme dieting or trying drugs and supplements – or if you are having thoughts of harming yourself.
