Q. What is mental wellbeing?

Mental Wellbeing is a state in which every individual realises their own potential, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to make a contribution to their community. (Source: World Health Organisation, 2019).
Q. What scale do you use to monitor mental wellbeing?

We use the Warwick-Edinburgh Mental Wellbeing Scale in our TOK Wellbeing Survey. This scale was developed to enable the monitoring of mental wellbeing in the general population and the evaluation of projects, programmes and policies which aim to improve mental wellbeing.
Q. What sort of questions does the survey ask?

First you will be asked to read the participant information at the start of the survey and give your consent to take part. If you consent you will be asked whether you are a pupil, staff member or parent. If you are a pupil you will be asked your year group. You will also be asked your sex.
