· The Schools of Integrated Health Sciences and Public Health are conducting research on mental health and fitness levels in college students.
· We are inviting you to participate because you are students at UNLV. College students are reported to experience high levels of depression, stress, and anxiety, but little is known about the relationships between these concerns with fitness level, academic status, and other factors.
· The results of this study could contribute to the development of safe, effective options that support student health and provide information for university stakeholders to better support students in time of crisis.
· You are eligible for inclusion if you are age ≥ 18 years and a student at UNLV during the 2020-2021 school year.
· You will be asked to answer some questions about your physical activity practices, academic status, demographic and background information,
lifestyle, and mood.
· You will not be asked to provide your name in the survey, and the survey software will not collect identification
· It should take up 10 -15 minutes to complete the survey.
· If you have any questions or would like to participate in the research, contact email@example.com or 702-895-3946.
· Your mental health is very important. Regardless of your interest in this student, if you are experiencing mental duress, depression, or anxiety, help is available at the UNLV Student Wellness Center. Student Wellness Center Counseling and Psychological Services - 702-895-3627
· Thank you for your time.
