I'm trying to run a multilevel serial mediation with a categorical mediator, like this:

IV (continuous) --> Mediator 1 (dichotomous) --> Mediator 2 (continuous) --> DV (continous)

The multi-level part is because I have days nested within partners nested within couples.

Is there a way to do this without running it as a Bayesian analysis? I think the categorical mediator is forcing it to be a Bayesian analysis.

Any help would be appreciated.

How many days do you have?

The categorical mediator can be handled by WLSMV using the Theta parameterization; also with twolevel analysis. Bayes is even better (better handling of missing data).
