UT survey seeks to gauge stress from the tornado, other factors

Hands On Nashville is proud to partner with the University of Tennessee in Knoxville to share a survey with Nashvillians that will gauge how they’re dealing with multiple forms of stress. The university’s Jennifer First and Mary Held are working to understand how dealing with compounding stressors affects emotional health, including resilience that helps people cope. 

The hope is that the data collected from the survey will help agencies provide better services for Nashville residents affected by multiple forms of stress, including the March 2020 tornados, COVID-19, and daily stressors. The survey does not ask for any names or any identifying information from participants. 

Participants are invited to fill out the survey if they: 

  • Are at least 18 years old 
  • Lived in Nashville during the March 2020 tornadoes 
  • Speak English or Spanish
