Hi. I'm a first-time Mplus user and I'm trying to test for a three-path mediation, where X>M1>M2>Y. I can get the models to run, but I want to be sure I'm doing everything correctly. Is there a place I could find generic sample code for this?

You would say:

y ON m2;
m2 ON m1;
m1 ON x;

Thanks for your response. I should have asked earlier, what would I need to do to create CIs? I tried running

M2 ind M1 X1 ;
Y ind M1 M2 X1;

(I specified that I wanted 5000 resamples and BC confidence intervals.)

But the output only shows specific indirect effects and CIs for X1.

I'd like to be able to see point estimates and CIs for M1, M2 and the indirect effect through M1-M2.

Any thoughts? Thanks!

Try specifying, for example,

y IND m2 m1;
