WEMWBS Scoring

Scoring over 59? Some people think this is a sign of really good mental wellbeing – whatever you are doing, keep doing it!

Scoring between 51 and 58? This is still pretty good mental health, and you should think about keeping an eye on this by repeating the test periodically just to make sure you continue to do ok.

If you have scored less than 50, you should think about taking the depression and anxiety symptom checkers, as scoring below this can be an indication of depression. You might think about using the Reading Well Wales resources to help things to improve.

You could think about accessing online CBT or another form of therapy. Take a look around the WASTkeeptalking portal to learn more about what is available.

TIP: Why not start a conversation today? Speak to a friend, colleague or loved one about how you are feeling.
