ACHA Survey Results
Mesa Student Health Services partnered with the American College Health Association
to provide a valid and reliable student survey in 2018-2019. Over 500 Mesa students
were surveyed. The results are provided in 2 ways:
The focus of the survey is physical and mental health. The survey results provide a clear picture about what our students believe about their health, their activities, mental health status and much more. It is important to know what issues, problems and concerns face our students because this gives a more comprehensive picture of who our students are in an “unseen” manner.
