I am Media Smart is a research trial of two versions of Media Smart, a fully online and confidential program found to help both those with body image concerns and those already showing signs of an eating disorder. The trial is open to 13-25 year olds of any gender from Australia. You are worthwhile and worth taking care of.

As an appreciation for participants’ time, a $30 gift voucher will be sent to those who complete all 4 surveys.  Those allocated to the body image tips condition will have the option of completing Media Smart at the conclusion of the trial.

This research has been approved by the Flinders University Social and Behavioural Research Ethics Committee (Project 8287). Those aged 16-25 can give consent to participate themselves.  For those aged 13-15 years, parental consent is required. This is all done online.
