Growing Well is a simple, versatile web-based app for assessing up to 50 aspects of our mental health and wellbeing. Using the universally-understood technique of scaling, this tool belongs in the hands of every mental health professional, social worker, counsellor, psychologist, and others who support young people or adults.
Growing Well is not only a Mental State Examination (MSE) tool for professionals—it is also a self-assessment tool. Empowering people to actively engage with their own mental health is one of this app’s greatest strengths. Arising out of evidence-based research, the Growing Well app is built around five key indicators of mental health: Being Organised, Being Satisfied, Being Healthy, Being Connected and Being Active. This app also incorporates the renowned ‘Five-Column’ technique from strengths-based practice.

assess for mental wellbeing.

The Issue; Future Picture; Strengths/Resources/
Exceptions; Constraints; & Next Steps.
