About This Campaign

What we eat and the image of our body we have created in our minds can have a big impact on your mental health, whether it’s a positive impact or a negative one, it must be discussed.

“At one point in life, I was so obsessed with losing weight that I didn’t realise how negatively it impacted my mental and physical health. But I learnt to love and accept myself the way I am after recovering.” – Sana Azhar Vice President Welfare 22/23
