‘Teen body image and self-esteem’ guide

The team at Freederm have contacted us to ask if we could share their useful guide on teen body image and self-esteem.

Their guide (Click here to see) contains helpful information about what can impact a teenager’s mental health, such as fear of missing out, cyberbullying and poor self-acceptance. As well as this, they explain the importance of hygiene, sleep and physical activity for teenagers as they develop, grow and cope with the transitions they are experiencing.

Finally, there is support for adults on how best to talk to teenagers about what they may be coping with or feeling, both when they are already struggling but also in order to support and prepare them for what may lie ahead.
