The City of Fremont Human Services Department Youth & Family Services (YFS) Division is seeking the participation of Fremont Unified School District Junior High and High School students to take part in the “Mental Health Stigma Reduction Youth Survey” which is supported by Kaiser Permanente Northern California Community Benefit Program, and designed to understand students’ attitudes about mental health concerns and factors affecting their willingness to seek help. Responses to this survey will enable us to better support students and families in getting help for mental health concerns. Participation in this survey is voluntary and all responses to survey questions are confidential and anonymous.

Participation in this survey study involves:

Students spending 20 minutes to complete the online survey;

E-gift card of $5.00 for the student upon completion of the online survey.
