Research Study: How Beneficial Do You Find Online Support Groups?


Bodywhys – The Eating Disorder Association of Ireland in collaboration with the UCD School of Medicine and Medical Science would like to invite you to take part in a study that explores the experiences of people who participate in online support groups.

We are interested in learning more about what it is like to be a part of the BodywhysConnect group and what support can be provided by online groups to their members. All of this information will ultimately lead to the provision of a better service in the future and evidence to support the fact that they are a useful resource.

If you are aged 19 or over and have taken part in an online support group through BodywhysConnect, please follow the appropriate link below and take part in the survey. The questionnaire should take approximately 10 minutes to complete.

Further information about the study can be found by following the “Participant Information Sheet” link below.

No information that can identify you will be collected.

Participation is completely voluntary.
