Global Wellbeing Survey

Careif & World Psychiatric Association (WPA)

International Wellbeing Survey

The Survey

This important survey is organised by Careif and WPA in the month of May 2016.

Please take the survey and do pass on the link to your networks, friends, and work colleagues.

The survey is entirely anonymous: no individual will be identified and findings will be used only for research, to improve knowledge about wellbeing.

The questionnaire will take only a few minutes to complete, and can be found at:



It is estimated that more than 450 million people in the world are affected by ‘disorders of the mind’, manifested by emotional or mental distress. The challenges for prevention and healing are significant, ranging from the social stigma that prevents people from seeking help, a lack of awareness in people themselves, insufficient resources and trained professionals, and the lack of culturally informed assessment, treatment and support.

As the world experiences unprecedented social and demographic change, wellbeing has risen up the political agenda for a complex mix of philosophical and economic factors. At the personal level, wellbeing enables us to live fulfilled lives. It is therefore important that we understand more about what constitutes ‘wellbeing’ in different cultures and settings, and how we can enhance personal wellbeing for individual and social benefit.

A team that includes academics and mental health professionals from Careif and WPA is conducting this ambitious population survey as the first stage in what we hope will lead to a major study of wellbeing around the globe.

A full report of findings will be published in Autumn of 2016, on the Careif and WPA websites ( ) and WPA (

Please help us secure a good global response; do forward this email to your colleagues, friends and anyone else you think would be willing to spend a few minutes completing a questionnaire. The questions require some thought but hopefully you will also find them interesting and informative.

We seek respondents coming from a wide range of ages, occupations, communities and backgrounds.
