Led by Pierre Côté, DC, PhD, Canada Research Chair in Disability Prevention and Rehabilitation, and Paul Secord, Director, Programs and Clinical Services, Canadian Mental Health Association Durham, the research project is supported through a funding grant from the Ontario Trillium Foundation.

The survey will examine the association between modifiable lifestyle factors among students, including:

  • back and neck pain
  • exercise
  • food insecurity
  • sleep behaviour
  • socio-demographic variables on student mental health
  • substance use

Participants are asked to complete a 15-minute online questionnaire by Friday, October 20.
