The Healthy Youth Survey (HYS) is administered to our 6th, 8th, 10th and 12th grade students every two years, providing important survey results concerning the health of youth with regards to areas such as substance use, depression, suicidal thoughts, anxiety, eating habits and medical access. The survey also provides an understanding of youth protective factors, such as access to caring adults, supports, coping strategies and hope.
School districts, county prevention coordinators, community coalitions, community public health and safety networks are among the organizations who use this information to guide policy and programs that serve youth.
The Healthy Youth Survey is a collaborative effort of the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction, the Department of Health, the Health Care Authority - Division of Behavioral Health and Recovery, and others.
