Improving Mental Health by Reducing Stress and Anxiety Related to Common Individual and Family Tasks.
Front Range Region
Goals, Scope and Objectives:
Objectives: A) To evaluate the reduction of anxiety and stress related to individual and family tasks addressed by current CSUE FCS programing. B) To develop and integrate short, digestible mental health messages into current CSUE FCS programs for delivery by CUSE Specialists. C) To evaluate if the addition of specific mental health messages into current CSUE FCS programs can further reduce anxiety and stress of participants.
Scope: By the end of this internship: A) Survey/evaluation tools should be developed and tested for reliability. B) Mental health messaging for specific programs should be developed and tested. C) A survey/evaluation plan, including distribution, data collection and data analysis should be written and reviewed by mentors and appropriate faculty members. D) IRB program application should be either submitted or in final draft.
Note: Survey/evaluation implementation might have begun but will not be completed during the internship timeframe. Implementation, collection, and data analysis will not be completed for at least 12 months, as CSUE FCS instructors continue to offer programing and administer the survey/evaluation. The intern will have the option to continue with this project in the future, if it meets their needs for a research project or thesis. Internship does not include actual data analysis.
