We are seeking participants for a 30-minute Kinsey Institute study about mental wellbeing, physical health, and coping of adults during the COVID-19 pandemic.
To participate: https://knsy.in/covid-coping
The purpose of this study is to better understand mental wellbeing, physical health, and coping of adults during the COVID-19 pandemic, and how previous experiences affect coping. Understanding how people feel and behave during this situation is important so that we can plan for both positive and negative outcomes, create appropriate resources, and prepare for events like this in the future.
Participation is voluntary and open. This research is intended for individuals 18 years of age or older. If you are under age 18, do not complete the survey.
