Healthy Minds Studies 2018-19

Research Project Description

The Healthy Minds Network's (HMN) Healthy Minds Studies (HMS) are a collection ofg several versions of the same annual web-based survey study examining mental health, service utilization, and related issues among undergraduate and graduate students. HMS is available for implementation at all types of higher education and post-secondary institutions, including U.S. and international four-year colleges and universities as well as community colleges. HMS is one of the only annual surveys of college and university populations that focuses exclusively on mental health and related issues, allowing for substantial detail in this area. The study has a special emphasis on understanding service utilization and help-seeking behavior, including factors such as stigma, knowledge, and the role of peers and other potential gatekeepers. The study also allows colleges and universities to examine how mental health symptoms predict academic outcomes (GPA and retention), which is translated into an economic case for mental health services and programs. HMS is hosted online and the instrument is maintained by the HMS research team at the University of Michigan.
