Social media and Australia’s eating disorder crisis

An expert panel has handed the Government a list of recommendations, aimed at reducing eating disorder rates in young people. It comes after eating disorder survivors and support advocates met with politicians and social media bosses in September last year. Now, they’re calling for legislative reform and changes to the way young people use social media. We’ll unpack the panel’s recommendations in the deep dive, and discuss whether these suggestions will lead to any change. 

Hosts: Zara Seidler and Emma Gillespie
