Research on Adolescent and Young Adult Mental Health

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. 

Launched in the Fall of 2020, this project reflects a collaborative effort by the JED Foundation, the Ethel and James Flinn Foundation, and Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan Foundation.
