This has been produced by the NMHIN under the direction of its Wellbeing Expert Reference Group. The guide is aimed at those working within public health and related fields, and is intended to provide practical support to those wishing to support local JSNAs and the commissioning of interventions to improve the mental wellbeing of local children and young people. The guide comprises of two documents: the first explains what mental wellbeing is for children and young people, why it is important and its key determinants, and the second is a technical appendix which identifies the measures which may be used to quantify mental wellbeing and its key determinants, together with information on how to use the measures and links to examples of evidence based practice.
