2019 Student Health and Wellness Survey

From January 28 to February 15, 2019 approximately 40% of Queen's students will be randomly selected to complete the Student Health and Wellness Survey administered by the National College Health Association (NCHA).  Along with more than two dozen other Canadian post-secondary institutions, Queen’s is trying to better understand student health.  Responses will identify areas where we can improve, and they will give us a snapshot of the health behaviours at Queen’s to better support the academic and personal success of all students.

The Queen’s General Research Ethics Board has reviewed and cleared this project; feel free to contact them at 613-533-6081 or at chair.greb@queensu.ca if you have concerns.  

There may be some personal discomfort with the content of certain questions in the survey.  For example, some of the questions deal with substance use, mental health and sexual behavior.  If students experience any distress as a result of this survey or wish to talk to someone about their health, they may contact any of the following resources:
