Wellbeing Self-Assessment

Use the WEMWBS self assessment tool to self-assess your wellbeing.

How Happy Are You?

Good mental wellbeing - some people call it happiness - is about more than avoiding mental health problems. It means feeling good and functioning well.

This tool uses WEMWBS (The Warwick-Edinburgh Mental Well-being Scale), a scale which is often used by scientists and psychologists to measure wellbeing.

To get your wellbeing score, go through the following statements and select the response that best describes your thoughts and feelings over the last two weeks. Then add up the scores.
