Mental Health Awareness Week 2019

Body Image – How We Think and Feel about Our Bodies

Organised by Psychosocial Department, Mental Health Awareness Week 2019 will take place from 11th to 18th May 2019. The theme for 2019 is Body Image – how we think and feel about our bodies.

What is body image? Body image is made up of a person’s beliefs, thoughts, perceptions, feelings, and actions about their body and appearance. Body image is important because the way we see ourselves influences every aspect of our lives: our mental health, our physical health, how we take care of ourselves, how we interact with and relate to other people.

Body image issues can affect all of us at any age. Take charge of your own mental health and live a healthier life by joining us in the series of events such as public talk, mental health screening and poster exhibition. Below are the details of the events:
