RESEARCH: THOUGHTS ON SEEKING PROFESSIONAL HELP

First, I'll introduce myself. My name is Jeremy Frank, I am a graduate student in psychology at the University of Windsor, in Windsor, Ontario, Canada. I am asking that some of you help me with my research. The goal of this research is to explore some of the thoughts and feelings that people sometimes have about going to see a mental health practitioner (e.g., a psychologist, a social worker.) To complete it, I need to find a fairly large number of women who are 18 years of age or older, who binge and purge (vomiting, use laxatives, diuretics, excessive exercise, fasting...), AND who have never sought professional psychological treatment (e.g., therapy or counseling). As you can imagine, this is an ambitious task, and it has been very hard for me to find people to help me.

If you fit the above description, would you be willing to help me out? Participating involves filling out a series of questionnaires on the web - it takes about 30-45 minutes to do, and you can do it completely anonymously if you like. At the end of the questionnaire, it asks you if you would like to leave your name so that you can be entered into a drawing for $50.00 - but this is optional. Your participation in this study would be greatly appreciated!

If you are willing to participate, please send me an e-mail (frank@uwindsor.ca) and I will reply you with the website address and password to get in. Once again, you are welcome to e-mail me anonymously if you prefer. Alternatively, you can leave me a message at 519-253-3000 ext. 2216

Thanks so much.
