First Floor Stacks

Class Research Goals

Class Research Challenges

  • Find quantitative and qualitative journal articles to develop an original research question related to mental health.
  • Complete a literature review of that selected topic by the end of the semester.


Research Limits

  • Current (last ten years), peer-reviewed journal articles
  • Supplementary sources and government statistics okay, but the bulk of research is through journals (mostly counseling, mental health, psychology, but this will vary depending on components within the research question)
