Supporting Eating Disorder Recovery in Young People

Online Survey Project Synopsis

DEADLINE EXTENDED TO 31 OCTOBER 2016


The online survey aims to investigate social identity and eating disorder recovery amongst young people aged 16-25 who have experience of using online support groups for living with an eating disorder.

What is the purpose of the research?
The survey aims to investigate social identity, social networks and eating disorder recovery amongst young people aged 16-25. We would like to know more about the places and people that young people turn to for help with any eating habits that they are worried about. We will ask you some questions about your thoughts and feelings around different sources of help (such as family, friends, and online groups) as well as some questions about your health and well-being.

Who can take part?
Participants will be aged 16-25 and have experience of using online support groups for living with an eating disorder.

What does the study involve?
The online survey will take approximately 15 minutes to complete.

Email Interview Project Synopsis

Email interviews will explore the experiences of young people aged 16-25 who seek out support for their eating disorder online. The recovery experience will also be explored, to consider both illness and recovery identities.

What is the purpose of the research?
The interview will explore the experiences of young people who seek out support for their eating disorder online, to understand and improve established mechanisms of social support for adolescents living with eating disorders. We are interested in the ways that these groups help young people cope with what can be difficult times.

Who can take part?
Participants will be aged 16-25 and have experience of using online support groups for individuals living with an eating disorder.

What does the study involve?
The interview questions will be emailed to participants in advance with the consent form. Once consent has been provided, a section of questions will be emailed to you and you will have a few days to answer. After you reply with your answers, the next section of questions will be emailed to you. The total time you will spend on writing your responses should be approximately one hour.

How can you take part?
If you would like to take part in an email interview, please email the study’s research assistant, Elizabeth Mair, on elizabethmair.ntu@gmail.com
