Hosted by the Mental Health Foundation, 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. During the week the Mental Health Foundation 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.
As part of Mental Health Awareness Week:
• The Mental Health Foundation will be publishing the results of a UK-wide survey on body image and mental health
• The Mental Health Foundation will look at body image issues across a lifetime – including how it affects children and young people, adults and people in later life
• The Mental Health Foundation will also highlight how people can experience body image issues differently, including people of different ages, genders, ethnicities and sexualities
• The Mental Health Foundation will use their research to continue campaigning for positive change and publish practical tools to help improve the nation’s relationship with their bodies
