Who is BODY?   Leave a comment

We believe in ‘Being One Distinguished You’ because we are ALL unique and everyBODY is BEAUTIFUL.

We’re a dedicated group of people from different walks of life that have put our heads together and united to create a charity that will ultimately help those who have body image issues.

Body image affects us all at some stage, and we’re incredibly passionate about helping YOU overcome what can sometimes be a very difficult journey.

We’re here to give the support & strength you need to deal with your own body image issues or comfort somebody close to you that needs a helping hand with theirs.

Here at BODY, we believe that there’s an obvious link between Body Dysmorphic Disorder and eating disorders such as Anorexia and Bulimia.

Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD) pre-occupies a person with negative thoughts about a certain part or several features of their appearance, so much so, that person is denied the right to live a normal, happy and healthy lifestyle…

This is what upsets us, and we can’t just stand by and let it happen. It’s a recognised mental health condition, which is misdiagnosed and often misunderstood.

So what are we going to do about it?

Our Mission

 

We aim to achieve 3 things…

  1. Increase awareness and re-educate the public.
  2. Strive to cure sufferers and offer support to the people who care for them.
  3. Change an unrealistic environment in relation to the disorders that we represent.

Here is how we’re going to do it:

  • Teach children the right way to feel about their bodies
  • Re-educate Health Professionals on misdiagnosis around Body Disorders
  • Employ more people to get help to those that need it
  • Run some great innovative self help classes and strive to cure current sufferers and support their carers through difficult times

It’s a tough job, but we’re putting in hard work because we know we can make a difference.

Nothing is out of bounds for us here at BODY.

We want to be the people that cause a beneficial change for generations to come and we believe we will…one small step at a time, with patience, hard work, dedication and undying passion for the cause.

So this is our mission and we certainly choose to accept it, jump aboard and join us on our journey.
