How are our military teens doing in 2022?
We joined with Bloom again to survey military teens for another year.
In both years, we utilized a descriptive, cross-sectional study design, providing us with a snapshot of the military teen population at two points in time using a voluntary response sample. The limitation of this sample is that it is somewhat biased; some people will inherently volunteer more readily than others. But the story they told was clear.
NMFA and BLOOM Partner on Military Teen Survey
Together with Bloom: Empowering the Military Teen, NMFA surveyed over 2,000 military teens in May 2021 using the Warwick-Edinburgh Mental Well-Being Scale (WEMWBS). This validated, 7-item scale was used to measure the well-being and psychological functioning of our military teen community ages 13 and up.
