The Healthy Minds Network hosts a national online college student mental health survey. It was introduced in 2007 by the University of Michigan’s School of Public Health in partnership with the Survey Sciences Group. About 300 campuses across the country have participated in this important research. The survey examines a variety of mental health issues among college students, including depression, anxiety, suicidal thinking, disordered eating, substance use, self-injury and social support. It provides data on help-seeking behavior and barriers to help-seeking and informs the planning of mental health policy, wellness education, campus-based mental health care, and crisis intervention. Further, it examines the dynamics between mental health and other factors, such as academic performance and substance use. Finally, the survey supports developing and evaluating programs to promote wellness, teach early identification strategies, and encourage help-seeking.
