About the research trial

Have you been diagnosed with a mental health condition, like an eating disorder, and now worry about it coming back or getting worse? If so, we want to hear from you!

Researchers at the University of Sydney want to better understand these worries. It’s natural to worry about your mental health, but we know that some people worry about it more than others, and we are interested in hearing from people who rarely worry and those who worry a lot.

This study involves a 15-minute online survey. At the end of the survey, you can also express your interest in being interviewed, one-on-one, about these worries and how you imagine your mental health may (or may not) change in the future. Please note: you are still welcome to complete the survey even if you do not wish to be interviewed.

Recruitment details

  • Aged 18 years or older
