Thank you for your interest in the National College Health Assessment (NCHA) survey at McGill.
The NCHA is a Canada and US-wide survey, and results will be used to understand general health and wellness of Canadian students as well as service and programming expectations. Your responses will help shape the future of services and offerings at McGill and other Canadian universities.
How it Works
Students who have been randomly selected to participate will receive a unique survey link in their McGill email.
The voluntary survey takes approximately 20-30 minutes to complete. The survey data collection is run by the American College Health Association (ACHA) and the data file shared with McGill University does not contain identifiers and your responses are confidential and anonymized upon submission.
Content Warning: Some of the questions in this survey may require you to think back upon difficult or traumatic experiences such as sexual violence, self-harm, and suicidal ideation, which could lead to emotional discomfort. If these feelings are lasting or extreme, please refer to the campus resources listed below.
Remember that participation in this survey is voluntary, and you may choose to skip questions as you wish.
For any general questions about the survey please contact:
