Student Mental Health Survey
Hi there! Please take a few minutes to fill out this survey. This is an anonymous survey.

Basic info: Our vision for this project is to help students cope with stress. Our plan is to make a room for all the students that are feeling down or stressed and need somewhere to calm down and relax. If this project comes to a completion, we would like to have activities that students enjoy doing for when they go in this room.
