The role of online support groups in eating disorders

I am a researcher at University College London. We are currently undertaking a project investigating the role of online support groups in eating disorders. Our aim is to better inform people of what these groups are like and your experiences of using them. We would like to invite people who identify themselves as having an eating disorder to take part in a short questionnaire.

Recruitment Criteria:

If you would like to take part in the questionnaire, please go to: https://opinio.ucl.ac.uk/s?s=15045

The survey consists of 4 short questionnaires, which take around 5-10 minutes to complete altogether.

This research has been approved by the UCL Research Ethics Committee (Project ID Number: 3029/001). All answers will be entirely confidential, no identifying questions will be asked, and you will remain completely anonymous. You will not be asked to provide your weight or BMI.

If you’re interested or have any questions, please feel free to contact me, my email address is [email protected]


“I had consistently been losing weight for more than 8 months and had become accustomed to eating very little. This triggered a return of my anorexia, after a 20-year period of recovery. SWEDA were able to offer me an appointment the very next day. When we met I was feeling very ill and frightened.I spoke to them about my fears, but then took the decision to go to my doctor on the way home. I was admitted to hospital within a few days.”
