Wellbeing Assessment

We can all expect to feel under the weather sometime, perhaps pick up a cold or sore throat.

But when it comes to the way we feel emotionally, it can be hard to recognise or admit that we’re not feeling good. This wellbeing assessment uses the Warwick-Edinburgh Mental Well-being Scale (WEMWBS) to measure wellbeing. Good mental wellbeing is about feeling good and functioning well. You may find that your mood goes both up and down so use this tool to monitor it over time. However, this is not intended to replace a consultation with a GP if you are struggling

Five Ways to Better Mental Health

The WEMWBS questionnaire for measuring mental well-being was developed by researchers at Warwick and Edinburgh Universities (see Tennant R, Hiller L, Fishwick R, Platt P, Joseph S, Weich S, Parkinson J, Secker J, Stewart-Brown S (2007) The Warwick-Edinburgh Mental Well-being Scale (WEMWBS): development and UK validation, Health and Quality of Life Outcome; 5:63 doi:101186/1477-7252-5-63).

The Warwick-Edinburgh Mental Well-being Scale was funded by the Scottish Executive National Programme for improving mental health and well-being, commissioned by NHS Health Scotland, developed by the University of Warwick and the University of Edinburgh, and is jointly owned by NHS Health Scotland, the University of Warwick and the University of Edinburgh.
