HealthySocialMedia Blog

Undergraduate psychology student Joanne Goodman, who is currently writing blog posts for the HealthySocialMedia website, has contacted us in the hope of getting feedback and quotes for her blog from people with limb loss and limb difference.

The blog post will focus on how body image affects the limb loss and limb difference community. The intention is to obtain quotes on how individuals challenge this and empower their body image.

As you know, information supplied for research can often have beneficial results for the Limb Loss and Limb Difference community generally. If you have quotes that you feel could be useful or would like to share your observations and thoughts, do please get in touch with Joanne and support her interesting and insightful HealthySocialMedia Blog.

Limb Loss & Limb Difference Awareness Month is nearing its end but just because the month changes, the awareness that #LLLDAM has raised doesn’t need to be lost. Let’s use it as a platform for awareness and action ongoing.

Read on for more from Joanne about HealthySocialMedia and check out the links at the bottom of this post. You can visit the website where you’ll find more information and some interesting articles. This is an interesting, living project that can grow as people contribute to it so do take part and help to add to the awareness of Limb Loss and Limb Difference that has been gained throughout #LLLDAM.

 


I recently became aware that April 2021 is National Limb Loss Awareness Month. I am interested in dedicating a blog post to this observance; which would aim to raise awareness, highlight the effect that limb loss can have on body image and how individuals with limb loss empower their body image.

The healthysocialmedia site, is a public website, that is concerned with all things social media: body image, eating disorders, health, psychology, and communication. Our organisation’s aim, is to provide the public with relevant research and real-life accounts within these areas, in the form of blog posts, infographics, and videos.

As we are coming towards the end of Limb Loss and Limb Difference Awareness Month, the healthysocialmedia team understood the importance of continuing to raise awareness, through keeping discussions in the area active. For our upcoming blog post, we are interested in highlighting the effect that limb loss and limb difference has on body image. The intention is to include some quotes from members of the limb loss and limb difference community, on how they challenge concerns surrounding this and empower their body image.

If you are interested in providing some quotes or any other information you deem relevant to our upcoming blog post, please contact me
