Youth Risk Behavior Survey (YRBS)
On behalf of the Tennessee Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services (TDMHSAS), Maryville City Schools has been invited to participate in the Tennessee Together Student Survey. The Tennessee Together Student Survey is funded through Governor Haslam’s TN Together initiative, which is focused on addressing the opioid epidemic in Tennessee. Results from the student survey will be used to assess the extent of alcohol, drug, and tobacco use and prescription drug misuse among students in Tennessee and to evaluate the impact of prevention efforts aimed at reducing substance use.
