Student Stress and Well-Being Project

Co-investigator (2016-2018)

 

The Student Stress and Well-Being (SSWB) project designed to develop and implement a rapid screening tool to measure stress and well-being among middle and high school students. The project seeks to uncover how stress and coping function within adolescents, the ways stress and coping affect students’ academic, behavioral, and health outcomes, and how school-based interventions can mitigate the effects of stress on student achievement, behavior, and well-being. The ultimate goal is to develop a tool that can be useful to assess students’ current stress levels, resiliency to stress, and the skills available to cope with stress.
