Maine Integrated Youth Health Survey (MIYHS)
In 2009, the Maine Youth Drug and Alcohol Use Survey (MYDAUS) was replaced by the Maine Integrated Youth Health Survey (MIYHS). The MIYHS is a joint effort of the Office of Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services, the Maine Center for Disease Control and Prevention, and the Department of Education. The MIYHS covers a broad array of health topics:
- substance use,
- unintentional injury,
- physical activity and nutrition, and
- sexual behaviors.
The MIYHS has a module for 5/6 th graders and 4 modules each for 7/8th graders and high school students, and includes a module administered to parents of kindergarten children or third graders. The next MIYHS will be administered in February of 2015. Frequently asked questions.
