The Healthy Youth Survey (HYS) is a collaborative effort of the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction, the Department of Health, the Health Care Authority - Division of Behavioral Health and Recovery, and Liquor and Cannabis Board.

The Healthy Youth Survey provides important survey results about the health of adolescents in Washington. County prevention coordinators, community mobilization coalitions, community public health and safety networks, and others use this information to guide policy and programs that serve youth.

New Information

2020 Healthy Youth Survey Postponed

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and many school facilities operating remotely, administration of the 2020 Healthy Youth Survey has been postponed and alternative administration options are currently being explored. The Healthy Youth Survey Planning Committee is committed to supporting our schools with valuable data to inform critical student support services, however, the administration of HYS this Fall is not feasible in the current environment and is not the best way to support our schools and students during this difficult time. Updates will be posted on www.askhys.net as plans evolve, and questions can be sent to SurveyAdmin@AskHYS.net.
