Report of a Survey on Young People's Body Image




The importance of body image as a major influence on teenagers’ mental health emerged as one of the key recommendations from Dáil na nÓg 2010.

Young people from the Dáil na nÓg Council developed a survey on body image, which was completed by teenagers from all around Ireland at the 2011 Comhairle na nÓg Annual General Meetings.

How We See: Report of a Survey on Young People's Body Image provides insights into how teenagers perceive themselves in an area of critical importance to their mental health and contains important messages for adult decision-makers in the health, education and other sectors.
