Whether you have private insurance, insurance from an employer, TRICARE, Medicaid, Medicare or no insurance right now please complete the survey. 

  • Adults, 18 and over, with any type of disability, mental or physical health condition are encouraged to participate
  • The survey should take about 20 minutes to complete
  • Responses are anonymous

    Mental illness is a psychiatric diagnosis. The label itself marginalizes people and creates a social disability. Several research questions were insensitive to this important distinction.
