What will happen in the study?
Participants were asked to complete a short online survey in October 2019. The survey asked about participants' background, family relationships, past emotional experiences, lifestyle (such as physical activity, substance use), physical and mental health, and academic outcomes. A follow-up survey was sent in May 2020. The follow-up survey aimed to learn about student experiences over the academic year, and asked about lifestyle, wellbeing, and health care access. Each survey took approximately 10 -15 minutes to complete.
We are currently planning the next stages of this research and will provide some additional information shortly.
The study is voluntary and responses are confidential. It is being conducted independently of the students' college or course. Participants may withdraw at any time.
