ABC News - Body Dysmorphia Disorder

This is a very eye-opening article about Body Dysmorphia Disorder. What makes this article so revealing is that the young woman featured has one of the most beautiful faces you'll see anywhere. It's an excellent example of how mental illnesses can have no connection whatsoever to reality.
It's very important to challenge the stereotypes around mental illness and this article does exactly that. I'm so glad the subjects are coping better and I hope others will get help the more these issues are brought into the public consciousness.
