Caring for someone with an eating disorder can be a very challenging experience for parents and caregivers.
A team of researchers from the Queensland University of Technology and Queensland Health are together looking into the experience of parents and carers of a young person with a long-standing eating disorder.
In particular, we are interested in learning more about carers’ own mental health and the issues and difficulties that may result from providing care and support.
If you are a parent or carer of a young person who has suffered with an eating disorder for approximately two or more years, and you would like to help to increase the understanding of the problems and issues faced by parent/carers, we would appreciate your assistance.
The research team are seeking information through both an online questionnaire that takes about 20 minutes of your time to complete, and/or your participation in a telephone interview.
