Feel Happy In The Media
Young people can feel their mental health issues are stigmatised or misreported in the media, when flippant and unsympathetic terms and descriptions are used.
Their anxieties are exacerbated by publications that promote ‘perfect’ standards of beauty, displaying digitally-enhanced images on their glossy pages.
As part of The Feel Happy Fix Live, 16 to 25-year-olds from across the UK are identifying the biggest issues relating to mental health and the media, before proposing practical solutions to make change for the better.
