The following survey is a study of Washington State School Psychologists and what they perceive their mental health needs to be in their schools.


Any school psychologist between the ages of 18-75+ may participate in this study.

This web-based survey will take approximately 20 minutes to complete. By choosing to participate you will help expand knowledge on how school psychologists perceive their mental health needs within their schools, how effective or ineffective mental health services are in schools and communities as well as the effect of new federal legislation on providing mental health services to students. Additionally, it may highlight the barriers that exist when working with this population which could help alleviate or bring forth more knowledge on how to overcome these barriers so that students receive the mental health support they need. 


Your decision to participate in this study is voluntary.  Although there is minimal risk to participating in this survey, some questions may bring up negative emotions such as stress and or discomfort. There will be questions about different mental health disorders, questions about community and school mental health services, and about different barriers that exist when providing services to students with mental health issues. Please see the listed resources and discontinue the survey immediately if you are feeling uncomfortable with the questions. You are free to answer all, some, or none of the questions on the survey. You may also withdraw from participating at any time and to do so you would simply close your internet browser and clear the history. Declining to participate will involve no penalty to you.
