This week Channel 4 highlighted the need for more support and specialist centres to help those with a Body Dysmorphic Disorder diagnosis.
Victoria Macdonald interviews a young woman with BDD and her mother about the experience of developing BDD through to diagnosis and then specialist treatment at the Maudsley Michael Rutter Centre.
The show also highlights the recent parliamentary inquiry and report into the impact of body image on physical and mental health.
Our wonderful trustee, Dr Amita Jassi, who is a Consultant Clinical Psychologist at the Maudsley Michael Rutter treatment centre, was also featured. She explains what Body Dysmorphic Disorder is, some common symptoms and how treatment can help.
