Measure

WHO-5 Well-being Index

Jump to data

Measuring adolescents’ mental well-being through their recent experiences, the WHO-5 Well-being Index explores positive moods, vitality, and general interests without fixating on symptomatic language. It serves not only as a reflective measure of mental well-being but also as a potential screening tool for identifying depressive symptoms.
