2017 MiPHY Infographics

The Michigan Profile for Healthy Youth (MiPHY) is an online student health survey offered by the Michigan Departments of Education and Health and Human Services to support local and regional needs assessment. The MiPHY provides student results on health risk behaviors including substance use, violence, physical activity, nutrition, sexual behavior, and emotional health in grades 7, 9, and 11. The survey also measures risk and protective factors most predictive of alcohol, tobacco, and other drug use and violence. MiPHY results, along with other school-reported data, will help schools make data-driven decisions to improve prevention and health promotion programming.

In Muskegon County, 13 school districts participate every two years in the MiPHY. Substance use prevention professionals, public health officials, educators, and MAISD staff collaborate on data-driven processes and strategic planning to enhance prevention efforts in Muskegon County. The MiPHY data drives the Drug Free Community of Muskegon County sub-committees, which are: Muskegon ALI, Knowsmoke, Muskegon Area Medication Disposal Program, Alliance for Marijuana Prevention Coalition (AMP), and the recently added Ride with Pride Coalition.
