Abstract

Societal standards seen in the media influence how young adults see themselves. Our presentation to high school students informed them of the alterations of models and products. A survey of our audience determined the effectiveness of our presentation. Based on the results of our surveys, we analyzed the impact our presentation had on our audience and improved it. We can decrease the prevalence of mental health problems in teens caused by unrealistic societal standards.
