Note: The March 2020 school closures for COVID-19 mitigation efforts interrupted PNA data collection, resulting in lower response rates and less participation than typical survey years. The 2020 PNA survey results are unweighted. Users should be cautious when making comparisons between 2020 and previous survey years. K6 Mental Health Screening Scale
