I have multilevel data (two nested levels: individual and team) and an upper level and lower level mediation. I will hypothesize that an individual-level predictor (X) affects a group level mediator (M1), and affects another individual level mediator (M2), which, in turn affects a group level outcome (Y). Is there a way to test this model?

X (individual) - M1 (group level) - M2 (individual) - Y (group level)

You would specify the model you show as follows where x and m2 are not put on the WITHIN list and m1 and y are put on the BETWEEN list:

%WITHIN%
%BETWEEN%
m1 ON x;
m2 ON m1;
y ON m2;
