Factors on High School Students' Mental Health During the Covid-19 Pandemic

Started Feb. 11, 2022

Abstract or project description

In this project, we're seeking to understand the factors related to high school students' mental health during the Covid-19 pandemic. We'll send out a survey on mental health to 1000+ high school students. The survey asks questions about social media use, extracurricular activity participation, stress about politics, and other factors that may be related to mental health. We will then conduct an experiment to understand ways to improve student's mental health. We hope that the combination of methods (correlational and experimental) will give us a better understanding of mental health.
