Tell Us How You Are Doing We want to know what you think about the health and well-being of our campus community by participating in the upcoming ACHA-NCHA survey. Conducted every 2 years on the UH Hilo campus, the survey is taken by peers around the country to assess the health, safety and well-being of students. The results are kept confidential and will be used to help guide programming and services for the future.Check your email on Monday October 4thfor further details. Must be a current UHHilo student and 18 years of age or older to participate. Mahalo for your thoughts!

2019 ACHA-NACH Survey Results As previously mentioned, the ACHA-NCHA survey is conducted on the UH HIlo campus every two years. In 2019, we saw nice participation that led to many program enhancements for Student Health & Wellness Programs. To see how students commented (in general), and to see which areas were targeted for improvements, check out the results page. By participating in this year's survey, you can help share future programs and educational opportunities for students.

Time For A Check-In? Mindwise has a great collection of screenings available to the UH Hilo Community. Sometimes, we may fall into habits we wouldn't have otherwise.
