As PROSIT's one year anniversary approaches, we would like to thank the 2500 participants who have taken part in all of our studies this past year. Without your dedication, our research would not be possible, and you have contributed to further understandings of mental health during and after COVID-19.

A huge thank you to our collaboration partners and institutions working with us, students, research assistants, volunteers, those who maintained the server, app maintenance crew, and advertising team. We look forward to working with everyone in future studies and continuing to improve our app design.

This project aims to address the struggles and coping mechanisms of those with hearing loss amidst our current global state. We will seek those with any degree of hearing loss and ask that they complete a survey pertaining to their health during the COVID-19 pandemic and how social isolation variables may have altered their everyday lifestyle. Questions will be asked through various validated questionnaires and will address psychological well-being and functioning, as well as levels of loneliness, anxiety, and depression. While certain questions will be asked in a format indicating strong-disagreement or strong-agreement, other questions will be open-ended, allowing for written expression of concerns and opinions. A follow-up survey will be administered post-pandemic to see how participants' quality-of-life has improved (or if we should develop an online platform for these participants to connect, to ask if they implemented some of the ideas shared by others who face the same struggles). By sharing the information obtained from this study, we hope to encourage those who struggle with hearing loss by reassuring that they are not alone and to help them find their way to happiness and healthy living.

As a result of the pandemic, university athletes are likely experiencing significant changes and challenges in their training and competition schedules. The current study wants to better understand if athletes are still able to receive adequate social support through remote forms of communication with coaches and teammates. During this unprecedented time in modern history, it is extremely important to further understand the mental health and social needs of university athletes--and support them to achieve scholarly and athletic success in the future. Therefore, the study proposes a series of questionnaires distributed to university athletes to assess depression, anxiety, distress, difficulties, motivation, and social support during the COVID-19 pandemic. By gaining a better understanding of athletes, the university and coaches can develop a plan of action to provide assistance, intervention, and improve student-athletes' mental well-being.

The COVID-19 pandemic has affected many aspects of daily life including social interactions, physical activity and sleep patterns. The intent of this study is to explore sleeping patterns and determine whether certain behaviours can predict psychological distress. We further seek to understand if these factors correlate with the distinct dreams some individuals experience. This study will collect sleep records through built-in smartphone sensors and online questionnaires to correlate both objective and subjective data. Sleep is a crucial aspect of health and with our findings, we hope to help individuals improve their sleeping habits and overall mental and physical health during the pandemic.
