BDD & ME - A new online peer support forum
BDD & ME is an online peer support community for people living with Body Dysmorphic Disorder, their families, carers and anyone who wishes to learn more about BDD from those with lived experience.
Created by Shioma-lei, a Doctoral Researcher living with and researching Body Dysmorphic Disorder.
She has been working on her PhD in Psychology since 2017 and over the years, she has been fortunate enough to speak to many others with BDD across the globe as part of her research.
BDD & ME was inspired by those people who shared their stories and paved the way for open conversations about BDD.
She created BDD & ME in order to provide a healthy place for others living with BDD to share their experiences and engage with an empathetic peer support community.
