What is mental wellbeing?
The Inner Compass Project
Key Quantitate Research Conclusions:
- Collective MWB change over the intervention was 16, with a change of 3 to 8 considered ‘likely to be meaningful’ to ‘unequivocally meaningful’.
- Collective MWB scoring at end of the intervention (and after 6 months) was above the average English and Scottish populations.
- ‘At high risk of mental illness’ scoring; 78% of starting score were classified in this range, with 4% ending in this classification (6% after 6 months).
- ‘Psychological distress’ or lower scoring; 92% of starting score were classified in this range, with 16% ending in these classifications (17% after 6 months).
*Our MWB measurement tool is widely used and highly validated, allowing for comparatives with country population averages and similar interventions, while also clearly segregating MWB into risk categories.
