2020 Rhode Island Young Adult Survey
Rhode Island Department of Behavioral Healthcare, Developmental Disabilities and Hospitals (BHDDH), 2020
The Rhode Island Young Adult Survey (RIYAS) was administered in 2020 to adults aged 18-25 years, residing in Rhode Island. The results of the 2020 RIYAS are presented within this report. To our knowledge, the RIYAS is the largest behavioral survey to date for young adults residing in RI for at least part of the year, including college students. The survey is scheduled to be administered again in 2022. The RIYAS provides a snapshot of the state of substance use and mental health issues among young adults residing in Rhode Island and can be used to help guide policy and programming. The RIYAS is funded through the Rhode Island Department of Behavioral Healthcare, Developmental Disabilities and Hospitals (BHDDH) Partnerships for Success II grant, provided by SAMHSA.
