The Healthy Minds Study (HMS) is now available for Penn State students. By completing the survey, students can help their campus community to assist with research on mental health services and program planning for the upcoming year.
The HMS is an annual web-based survey study examining mental health, service utilization, and related issues among undergraduate and graduate students. Since its national launch in 2007, HMS has been fielded at over 180 colleges and universities, with over 200,000 survey respondents. The study also allows colleges and universities to examine how mental health symptoms predict academic outcomes (GPA and retention), which is translated into an economic case for mental health services and programs.
Students should check their Penn State email to access the survey. The study survey will remain open through Friday, March 1. For more information about the Health Minds Study, visit healthymindsnetwork.org/research/hms.
