Mind Matters: How Teens Feel & Think About Their Bodies 

In a society which highly emphasises outward appearances, it can often be easy to be dissatisfied with our body image. For adolescents, this pressure can feel immense as their bodies also go through rapid physical changes during puberty. On top of that, with rising peer pressure and the influence of social media, are our teenagers growing up in an environment where they find it harder to love their bodies as they are? Consultant child psychiatrist Dr Anita Codati from Hospital Tunku Azizah weighs in on this episode of Mind Matters.
