New in 2015, the Ohio Healthy Youth Environments Survey is an online health survey for Ohio students in grades 7 and 11. OHYES! questions cover far-ranging topics, including:

  • demographics
  • alcohol, tobacco, and drug use
  • school climate, including bullying
  • physical and mental health and well-being
  • parental attitudes and influences
  • community factors
  • school achievement

The OHYES! data will provide a snapshot of youth health behaviors across the state of Ohio. This snapshot will:

  • help school systems access needs and make strategic plans and prioritize
  • guide educational policy
  • raise awareness of youth needs
  • track program goals
  • provide rationales for program funding

CHRR is providing respondent communcations and marketing materials for this student survey, which is a collaborative effort of the Ohio Departments of Education, Health and Mental Health & Addiction Services, Ohio National Guard, and representatives from higher education, juvenile courts, foundations and community service providers.
