Participant Information

Help InsideOut better understand the impact of the COVID-19 outbreak on Australians living with an eating disorder, body, shape or weight concerns, or exercise concerns, by completing our online survey. 


These unprecedented times of food insecurity, increased hygiene measures, closure of health and fitness centres and increased sense of uncertainty may have triggered eating disorder symptoms. However, 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. 


We know that people with eating disorders can have a complex relationship with food, exercise and social relationships, and we are interested in how this relationship may have changed in 2020 for you. 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 in treatment, social isolation and quality of life.  


If you are 16 years or over, please complete the survey at the link below and help us to measure the impact of COVID-19. 

If you have any questions, please contact InsideOut on 02 8627 5690  or by email at Please put COVID STUDY in the subject line. 

If you feel distressed at any time, please call 1 800 ED HOPE (1 800 33 4673). 

This study has been approved by Sydney Local Health District Human Research Ethics Committee (X20 -0181)
