Syracuse University Conducts Research Into COVID-19 And Mental Health

Bridge Street

Syracuse University is currently doing a research project and they need your help!

The project is examining mental health during the COVID-19 pandemic, while we’re all dealing with the closures, restrictions, social distancing and being isolated in our homes. Researchers are using an online questionnaire to learn about depression, anxiety, stress, and PTSD, working to find out what conditions and behaviors might influence mental health. One of the main behaviors that researchers are interested in is physical activity and aspects related to it.

“We are interested in seeing how much we are being affected” says SU Assistant Professor and Researcher Tiago Barreira. “So we are having people complete surveys and questionnaires to see how it compares to before all this social isolation, and we’re also trying to figure out what people or strategies people are thinking to maybe cope with it and do better with their mental health.”
