Chicago parents, what questions do you have about student mental health?

WBEZ wants to hear your questions, concerns and stories about student mental health as you look ahead to the next school year.

WBEZ brings you fact-based news and information. Sign up for our newsletters to stay up to date on the stories that matter.

Between the pandemic, remote learning, school work and social media, Chicago students have lots to be stressed about.

That’s why WBEZ’s Community Engagement and Education Teams, in partnership with Illinois Latino News, are surveying Chicago parents of school-aged kids about student mental health. What questions do you have about how to keep your child healthy while learning? What kind of help could you use as a parent heading into the next school year?

Please fill out this brief survey!

Based on what you tell us, we’re planning to host a virtual event in August aimed at answering as many of your questions as possible about student mental health. We’re also planning to put on some in-person resource fairs to connect Chicago parents with information and resources. Our goal is to give you the information you need to start the next school year off on the right foot!
