The College Student Mental Wellness Advocacy Coalition has launched its second annual ‘Thriving College Student Mental Wellness Survey’ in partnership with the ‘Hi, How Are You Project’ and The Jed Foundation. The survey was sent to 800,000 students living in student housing communities in the U.S. and Canada.
Survey results will be reported in the form of an annual index in January of next year. “Thanks to this survey data, we will have the opportunity to continue to learn about various dimensions of student mental wellness including their levels of stress and anxiety, coping mechanisms, future outlook, feelings of connectedness, and more,” says Dr. Sonia Krishna, a board-certified physician specializing in child, adolescent and adult psychiatry and Hi, How Are You Project board member. “We encourage all students who receive the survey to complete it as this actionable data will help us develop mental wellness resources, staff training, and community programming in the ways they are most needed.”
The College Student Mental Wellness Advocacy Coalition is made up of 24 companies in the student housing industry, including: American Campus Communities, CA Student Living, Campus Advantage, Campus Apartments, Cardinal Group, Core Spaces, Landmark Properties, PeakMade Real Estate, Pierce Education Properties, The Preiss Co., RPM, Student Quarters, The Scion Group, Greystar, Michaels Student Living, Campus Life & Style, Asset Living, Caliber Living, Yugo, Balfour Beatty, The Dinerstein Cos., University Partners, Gilbane Development Co. and GMH Communities.
