The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on people with eating disorders in Australia
About this study
There is currently little evidence on the short-term and long-term impact of COVID-19 on pre-existing mental health concerns, such as eating disorders. People with eating disorders have a complex relationship with food, exercise and social relationships, and we are interested in how this relationship may have changed in 2020, so the InsideOut Institute for Eating Disorders have launched a new study. We want to know the unique challenges or opportunities you are facing, and we are seeking to measure the impact on symptoms, access to and changes to treatment, social isolation and quality of life.
If you are 16 years or over and live in Australia, please complete the survey at the link below and help us to measure the impact of COVID-19. This study has been approved by Sydney Local Health District Human Research Ethics Committee (X20 -0181).
