Student mental health has gained increasing attention over the past few years, with the pandemic shedding light on the challenges many of our students face. As a crucial step toward better understanding and improving the mental health needs of our university community, we will invite randomly selected students to participate in the Healthy Minds Survey. This annual survey-based study examines mental health and related issues, such as depression, anxiety, and substance use, as well as service utilization among students.
Randomly selected students will receive the survey link via UMail on Monday, Oct. 30. The survey closes on Friday, Nov. 17.
Your participation in this anonymous survey will empower the university to advocate for enhanced mental health services and programs on our campus. The survey results will help evaluate the effectiveness of existing mental health programs; determine the need for additional programs and services; raise awareness of mental health and campus resources; and the establishment of a baseline for comparison with other institutions.
Please note that your answers are confidential and protected. Once the survey is complete, the link between your name, email, and IP address will be broken to ensure that no one can link students to their responses. The results will be presented in summary form to safeguard the anonymity of individuals.
