COVID-19 Parent and Child Mental Health Survey Distribution Request

The Rocky Mountain Prevention Research (RMPRC) needs your help!

The RMPRC developed a survey for caregivers (parents/guardians) of children 18 months to 5 years of age in order to better understand the impact that the COVID-19 pandemic has had on families in our communities.

They are asking partners to help disseminate the survey link (and the advertisements below – available in English and Spanish) to their social and community networks. A summary of the results can be shared with ASNNA members and respective community partners. Survey participants will have the opportunity to enter a drawing for an electronic $100 gift card if they choose to participate. The survey is offered in Spanish and English.
