Our aim is to promote the psychological well-being of people everywhere through the
provision of information, assessment, treatment and research.
As part of this, we offer no-cost and low-cost websites to professionals and the general public.
Here are some descriptions of our main activities, with click-on links to take you to the relevant website:
The Strengths and Difficulties Questionnaire (SDQ)
is our brief measure of psychological well-being in 2-17 year olds. It is probably
the most widely used measure of its kind and has been translated into almost a hundred languages.
- Young people, parents and teachers can fill in the SDQ online and receive immediate free feedback on possible areas of
concern from www.youthinmind.info.
- For SDQ information and downloads for professionals, visit www.sdqinfo.org.
- Professionals can score paper copies of the SDQ at www.sdqscore.org.
The Development and Well-Being Assessment (DAWBA)
is our detailed measure of mental health in 2-17 year olds. It is widely used internationally in over twenty languages.
