About

This indicator is the percentage of students in grade 6 to 12 who have their mental fitness needs highly satisfied by friends. Students are given a 'total friends score' based on their responses to 6 individual questions about mental fitness, and a cutoff is used to identify students with a high score.

Source

New Brunswick Health Council, New Brunswick Student Wellness Survey - Grades 6-12

The response options for these 6 items are: really false for me, sort of false for me, sort of true for me and really true for me.
