Can a Negative Body Image Trigger Mental Disorders?
I’m going to talk about body image and mental health in today’s blog. As a psychology professor, I interviewed hundreds of people regarding psychological issues. While discussing mental health with my fellow researchers, the subject of body image particularly interested me. I did some research on the relationship between one’s body image and mental health and found out that those who have negative body images are at a higher risk of getting depression, as well as physical health issues.
