Body Image - Priscila Hernandez x Mental Health Foundation Add Video

Spoken word poem written and performed by Priscila Hernandez for Mental Health Awareness Week 2019.



We are the UK’s charity for everyone’s mental health. With prevention at the heart of what we do, we aim to find and address the sources of mental health problems.



Priscila is a 24-year-old spoken word artist from South East London. Her poetry entails a powerful expression of her personal experiences, as well as those of others. Her work covers issues such as mental health, body image, feminism, and London. She aims to create social impact and empower others through her words.


Priscila wrote this piece for the Mental Health Foundation because she experienced disordered eating when she was younger. That set a pattern around her a relationship to body image. She has had a constant battle with her body for years and even now, as a personal trainer and fitness instructor, this battle is still present.


She wrote this poem because she wanted to raise awareness around the connection between the body and mental health.
