Additional Study Details

Study Details:
The survey will ask questions about your experience in and opinions about seeking help for your child’s mental/behavioral/emotional concerns. We estimate that approximately 200 parents/caregivers will take part in this study. The study does not collect your name. We will ask for your zipcode in order to understand whether people who live in a similar zipcode face similar challenges to accessing mental health resources. Collecting zipcode will also help us understand which community resources are most available. There will be additional phases to this study in the future. Participation in future phases is completely voluntary. If you would like to be informed of future study plans, you may complete the contact information form at the end of the survey. Thank you for your interest!
