It’s no secret that graduate students are especially susceptible to mental health issues, as we are often thrown into challenging, fast-paced situations where there is sometimes little support, few outlets for stress, and the stakes have never seemed higher.


Fortunately, there are people who care about addressing this issue, and multiple initiatives have been created to study and address this problem. One such initiative is the Grad Health Survey, a research project by Drs. Teresa Evans, UT Health Science Center San Antonio, Nathan Vanderford, Univ. of Kentucky, and Lindsay Bira, UT Health Science Center San Antonio.

If you complete the survey, you will be eligible to win prizes such as an Amazon Kindle Fire and Starbucks gift cards. Win-win for everyone.

From the project’s LinkedIn page:

“This project is in need of survey respondents that will result in a better understanding of the impact of stress, anxiety, depression, and burn-out on graduate students’ and postdoctoral fellows’ health and well-being. The trainee health survey 2016 is a short, 10 minute survey designed to shed light on the mental health and well-being of graduate students and postdoctoral fellows across the nation. The goal of this study is to investigate the role of career preparation and outlook in the promotion of trainee health. The results will provide insight into the levels of distress in trainees as well as common issues in graduate training. This understanding would help identify ways in which trainee needs might be better met.”
