NAMI is seeking the perspectives of individuals who work with young people on a regular basis to better understand the role of creativity in young people’s lives. In collaboration with an industry partner, NAMI is conducting a brief survey to learn more about the benefits and drawbacks of creativity, as well as what factors make it easier or harder for youth to engage in creative activities.
If you would like to share your thoughts and experiences related to youth and creative engagement, NAMI would appreciate hearing from you.
NAMI welcomes you to take the survey if you:
- Are 18 years of age or older
- Reside in the United States
- Work directly with young people (aged 13-25) in either a paid job or unpaid volunteer role (e.g., educators, coaches, faith leaders, mentors, clinicians)
Please note that Internet access through a computer, tablet, or smartphone will be required to complete the survey. The survey should take approximately 15-20 minutes to complete.
