Study Purpose

Research Question

Four-wave study

We wanted to ask students (age 12-18) in our metro school divisions - Calgary Catholic/Public, Edmonton Catholic/Public, with Rocky View joining in Wave 5 & 6 - how they are feeling about COVID-19 and the present state of their mental health and resiliency in their first few weeks during return to school.

What are the self-reported mental health needs and resiliency indicators of students returning to school amidst COVID-19?

Wave 1 data collection completed October 2, 2020.
N = 2425
