Beliefs & Coping with COVID-19

Beliefs & Coping with COVID-19

What’s the Purpose?

The purpose of the study is to better understand people’s perceptions and behaviors regarding the COVID-19 coronavirus, and to compare experiences from around the world. For example, we are interested in beliefs about the likelihood of catching the virus, and severity of the virus, and in behaviors people are taking to cope with the virus.

This is a Psi Chi NICE: CROWD project.

What Should I Expect?

This project involves a survey and includes questions about the coronavirus, government attitudes, mental health, perceived risk, and quality of life.
