Kristina Saffran, co-founder of Project HEAL comes onto The Recovery Warrior Show for a casual conversation around the research she is doing at Stanford to explore how Facebook usage effects people who have received treatment from an eating disorder. We share our personal experiences and our opinions on the pros and cons of being active on social media during recovery.

Participate in the Facebook Usage Study

Kristina and researchers at Stanford University are conducting a short survey to explore the Facebook usage of individuals who have received treatment for an eating disorder in a group setting. This survey is completely anonymous and only takes 15-20 minutes to complete. Please help them advance knowledge on the eating disorder recovery process by clicking the link below and taking the survey.

  • Eligibility Requirements: Please only fill out this survey if you have been treated for an eating disorder (either currently or in the past) in a group setting. This may include inpatient, residential, partial hospitalization, and/or intensive outpatient treatment (that included a group component) or participating in an outpatient therapy group. This does not include individual outpatient treatment – that is, if you have only ever received treatment for an eating disorder in individual outpatient therapy (and have never received treatment for an eating disorder in a group setting), you are not eligible for this study at this time.
