In Australia, more and more young people are experiencing body dissatisfaction.

Body dissatisfaction occurs when people have negative thoughts and feelings about their body image and it can be detrimental to a person’s mental and physical wellbeing.  Children and adolescents who struggle with poor body image are more likely to continue experiencing this in adulthood and are at greater risk of developing more serious body image and eating issues in their life.

Young people are more vulnerable when it comes to body dissatisfaction due to over exposure to dieting practices and products, excessive and rigid exercise regimes, frequently expressed appearance concerns and/or strong biases about being a higher weight. Now more than ever, with increased isolation due to COVID, more exposure to social media than ever before, and increased levels of stress and anxiety, young people are even more at risk.

Now is the time to support our kids’ mental health so they don’t develop problems down the track. Without intervention, we’re heading for a dire future. Help us #ChangeThePicture.
