Mel is a YouTuber who talks often about body positivity. In this video, she shares about how her mental health has affected her body image.

I’m Mel Ciavucco and I make body image and self-esteem YouTube videos. I totally support body positivity and think that we should all love our bodies, but sometimes I feel like the biggest hypocrite ever. I’ve struggled with body image and self-esteem issues, and anxiety, all my life. But I’m on a journey to try to be kinder to myself. I’d love you to join me!

 

In this video I talk about how body image issues and anxious thoughts have impacted my life, and I share some of my tips and coping strategies too.

It can be anything, from a poem, to an article, to a video, to a piece of artwork – we’re just after stories to tell. We can keep things anonymous if you’d like and we’ll help you to edit your piece then get it up on the blog.
