Body U Online Program Available

Body U is an online guided self-help program currently used in 12 public universities across Missouri and gives students an evidence-based program, based on 25+ years of research. The program offers screening for eating disorders, depression, and anxiety and then provides tailored online interventions aimed at promoting healthy behaviors and addressing these issues. We have something to offer everyone – those who feel as though they already have healthy habits, those who are struggling with depression and anxiety, and those who feel as though their eating, exercise, and body image could use some work.

 Body U has been adapted to be offered at no cost to all residents of Missouri. To participate, your client will need to complete a short screen here: At the end of the screen, they will receive a recommendation for a program and/or information on how to contact the National Eating Disorders Association helpline, the Missouri Eating Disorders Council website, and the National Suicide Prevention Helpline. You can also send the flyer attached to this email to clients for information and link to the survey.
If you have any questions regarding Body U, please contact Marie-Laure Firebaugh at
