The city of Kumamoto will conduct a survey on the mental health of around 60,000 children, as many are believed to be under stress in the aftermath of the recent fatal quakes that hit the region, according to city officials.

The survey will cover school-age students from kindergarten through high school. They’ll be asked questions such as whether they worry about being alone and if they find themselves on the brink of tears, the officials said.
