We appreciate your support of the Birmingham Bloomfield Community Coalition (BBCC). This survey provides your local coalition, BBCC, with important information regarding parental opinions and attitudes regarding underage substance use and mental health issues in our community. 

BBCC is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, community-serving organization that takes a research driven, youth-led approach to substance abuse prevention, health and wellness. BBCC and its Youth Action Board (YAB) provide education, tools, activities, and support to help youth rise above life’s challenges by making informed decisions about their safety, health and wellness, as well as encouraging adults to thoughtfully support them.

This parent survey is anonymous, and all of the responses will be aggregated.  
This survey is for parents who currently have a child(ren) in grades K-12.

For the remainder of the questions, if you have more than one child 18 and under, base your responses on the oldest child.

This survey will take approximately 9 minutes to complete.
