Healthy Minds Network Writing Lab

The goal of the Writing Lab is to encourage and facilitate the analysis and publication of data from the Healthy Minds Study (HMS), our national survey of student mental health. Participation in the Lab involves regular meetings of students and others working on data analyses and research articles with HMS data. The Lab is led by our Healthy Minds team, including the PIs (Sarah Ketchen Lipson, Daniel Eisenberg, and Justin Heinze); we will provide guidance related to generating research ideas, analyzing the data, and writing academic manuscripts. We will also facilitate the formation of collaborative writing teams based on shared interests. The Lab is open to anyone interested in understanding HMS data and publishing from the data, including undergraduates, graduate students, post-docs, faculty, and others. More experienced researchers are also welcome to join as a mentor, a collaborator, or both. We encourage you to review our Healthy Minds Study questionnaire, codebook, and data interface

If you are interested in joining the Writing Lab or have questions, please email the team at or complete this form.
