Body Image and Mental Health
In a world where social media is everywhere and in our lives day and night the impact of this on people as individuals can be a mixture of positivity and negativity. For a lot of people the impact of the promotion of having the ‘perfect body’ whether you are male / female can have a devastating impact for example bullying, mental health and worst case scenario suicide. So how can we improve / promote a more positive image using social media and support male / females to love who they are for them and not think they have to look / be a certain way to ‘fit in’.
Reading, research and discussion lead on to the final activity: to design a campaign poster that promotes a positive message with regards to body image and where needed offers support links for people to access.
