Mental health: Emotional wellbeing

There is no one definition of wellbeing, but it is considered to be an over-arching concept concerning the quality of people's lives. Wellbeing is a multi-factorial concept, and includes emotional wellbeing. The Coalition Government are committed to measuring the populations' wellbeing and using this as an indicator for measuring the quality of our lives. The Office for National Statistics is leading on the development of a national measure, and this work will include measuring the wellbeing of children and young people.

This list of resources brings together key information and links relating to children’s and young people’s emotional wellbeing. If you have any suggestions on resources to add contact us.
