Healthy Minds Study for Secondary Schools

HMS2 is a web-based survey study that explores the mental health and well-being among students at secondary schools. 

The survey aims to better understand factors that influence student mental health and well-being such as help-seeking and health behaviors, knowledge and attitudes about mental health, and social and emotional development.

Participating schools will receive data deliverables that can be used to inform policy, programs, and practice related to supporting student mental health and well-being. You’ll also join a cohort of schools recognized for their dedication and commitment to supporting student mental health.
