What role does mental health play in the health industry?

As a response to diet culture, in 2019 Fanny Beckman created the photo series "Women of My Generation". By portraying women who felt unrepresentated in mainstream media, wearing only underwear, she challenges the modern beauty standards. But, what started as a photo series has uncovered conversations which are just as important.

Every week, Fanny invites a special guest to share their story. This podcast covers everything from fashion to mental health issues, activism to family relationships - and most of all: body image.

EPISODE 12 - ACE (PART 2)

Trigger Warning: Descriptive language surrounding eating disorders and sexual assault.

Before listening to this episode, it's recommended that you listen to Part 1 of Fanny Beckman's conversation with Ace, here.

Ace is back, and this time we focus on illnesses developed after years of fasting. She also educates us on PCOS - a health condition that affects 1 in 5 women in the UK, but is a mystery to many.
