Are you an Australian adult (18+) who has been diagnosed with body dysmorphic disorder (BDD)?   

Researchers from Swinburne University of Technology are looking to understand the healthcare experiences of Australian adults who have been diagnosed with BDD, so that we can identify problems, missing gaps or barriers, that prevent people with symptoms of BDD from receiving appropriate diagnosis and treatments. 

You can help by taking part in our anonymous online survey, which only takes 30 – 45 minutes to complete.
