Mental Health Awareness Week 13th-19th May 2019
Mental Health Awareness Week 2019 will take place from Monday 13 to Sunday 19 May 2019. The theme for 2019 is Body Image – how we think and feel about our bodies.
Body image issues can affect all of us at any age. This national awareness week is hosted by The Mental Health Foundation. During the week they will be publishing new research, considering some of the reasons why our body image can impact the way that we feel, campaigning for change and publishing practical tools.
What is Body Image – Why Does It Matter
Body image is our thoughts, beliefs, perceptions, feelings, and actions about our body’s appearance. It matters because the way we see ourselves influences our mental health and physical health. Developing and fostering a healthy body image offers you protection against poor self-esteem, disordered eating patterns, and mental health conditions like depression and anxiety.
