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 saw a SWEDA support worker on campus at university. I had been struggling with binge eating disorder and compulsive exercise for about ten years. The SWEDA support worker was able to help me look at my relationship with food and my body in a different way. I have learned to be kinder to myself and they taught me techniques which helped me to slow down my thinking. Now I can go out and have fun without worrying all the time.”
