About the research trial

Research suggests that sense of self (i.e how well you know yourself) to be an important factor in anorexia nervosa (AN), but our understanding of the role of sense of self in AN is still limited. As such, the purpose of this research is to gather more information on sense of self in people with AN and how sense of self relates to body image and eating disorder symptoms. The survey will ask you some questions about yourself, your mental health history, and eating disorder symptoms. There will also be a few questionnaires asking about your feelings around your body image, your feelings around your sense of self, and your mood and personality traits. Throughout this survey, there will be some questions that will ask you to type in information, while others will simply ask you to select an option from a list. As an optional reimbursement for your time completing the survey you can choose to enter into a lottery for a chance to win one of five $100 Coles gift vouchers.
