Difficulty with body image affects people of any gender. In today’s society, there is a focus on physical appearance and the ‘perfect body’ and social media can emphasise this.
Scrolling through Instagram and making comparisons between ourselves and what we see is very common. This can distort our sense of body image, creating unrealistic expectations of how we should look and as such, is impacting on the mental health of many young people.
Jigsaw are offering an online webinar this coming Tuesday evening to support parents around this.
