Is it possible to use MPlus to perform moderated mediation with a binary mediator? I have the following situation:

X(Dichotomous) --> M(dichotomous) --> Y(continuous)

In addition, it is moderated mediation, so the dichotomous-->dichotomous link is moderated by gender. Ideally, I would like to construct bias-corrected bootstrap CIs from X to Y at two different levels of my moderator (coded 0 and 1).

Is this doable in Mplus? If so, how would I go about coding that?

One simple way of doing that is using WLSMV, creating a product variable for X*gender, and using Model Constraint to express the indirect effect for the two gender values.
