Body Image and You. What do you love about your body?

SSGT Stand: Body Image and You. What do you love about your body?

This year the theme for Mental Health Awareness Week was body image and the link between this and mental health. As SSGTs (Student Support and Guidance Tutors) on the Eastbourne Campus, Rob Marriott and myself set up stands at both Hillbrow and Darley Road to engage students around this issue, raise awareness and provide support information. Students were asked to write on our mirror something they liked about their body in exchange for information on this issue and either a temporary tattoo or a mirror pen so they could continue to write positive messages on their own mirrors. 120 students participated across both sites from both the School of Sport & Service Management and the School of Health Sciences.

Here are some photos from the event
