Danny Bowman bravely spoke on Sky News about his battle with Body Dysmorphic Disorder.

To raise awareness and understanding of BDD in men Danny shared his story.

"BDD rips a person apart… you look at yourself every day and you think that you're hideous," he said.

He feels fortunate that his family could afford to take him from Northumberland to the hospital in London every week, saying: "I can't thank enough the psychologist there who pretty much put my life back on track."

We encourage any men who are struggling with body image issues to reach out for help.  With treatment, recovery is very possible.
