It 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.
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.
