Developing your own indicators

MWBT - indicators highlight - reduced.jpg

Where data is not available, local areas can select indicators of relevance from the national indicators and develop their own local mental health indicator sets. They can use the questions and scales used in the national surveys, including WEMWBS, and develop or extend local information gathering systems such as local surveys to gather information from an appropriate sample of the population they are interested in.

To establish whether there is are any local area data available for your required area, please email the Scottish Health Survey ScottishHealthSurvey@scotland.gsi.gov.uk or the Scottish Household Survey shs@scotland.gsi.gov.uk
