Today we are going to talk about negative body image and self-harm.
Issues about body image are more common than you might think. They seem to be due to the constant comparison we force on ourselves and our desire to be seen as perfect. This idea seems to be perpetuated by the media, our peers, and of course, by the beliefs we have created around ourselves and the world we grew up in.
People, especially young adults, with body image issues are more likely than their peers to use and abuse drugs, alcohol and self-harm.
