Mental Health Outcomes with detailed insights
THE METHODS TO UNDERSTANDING AUSTRALIA'S MENTAL HEALTH AND WELLBEING
The Be Well Tracker was created to fill a gap in our public understanding of Australia's mental health and wellbeing: a knowledge gap that impacts the wellbeing decisions we make as individuals, organisations and the wider community.
We are on a mission to help people and organisations get up-to-date insights into their mental health and wellbeing. By doing this on an ongoing basis, we are also creating a snapshot of Australia's mental health and wellbeing while we are at it.
This website discusses the measurement we do, the platform we built, its current findings and the potential it has to create positive change for anyone who uses it.
MEASURING MENTAL HEALTH COMPREHENSIVELY
Mental health ≠ mental illness. We measure more than just distress and symptoms of mental illness
USING ROBUST, RELIABLE & VALIDATED SCALES
We use scientific scales, as we need to use more than single items if we want to capture the complexity of our mental health
INSIGHT INTO CURRENT STATES AND FUTURE RISK
Our scales are easy-to-interpret, come with benchmarks and provide clear 'cut-offs' for current challenges and risk for problems down the line.
PROVIDING REAL-TIME FEEDBACK USING REPORTS
We report back: Participants get an immediate online report on their mental health profile in real-time and tailored sugggestions on resources & services they could explore
CREATING REPORTS ON SUB-GROUPS & FOR ORGANISATIONS
We can combine individual data to create an understanding of the mental health of particular groups or the influence of specific variables
SECURITY AND PRIVACY ARE GUARANTEED
Our platform is covered by research ethics and adheres to strict privacy and security principles, safeguarding people's personal information.
OUR CUSTOM-MADE PLATFORM: THE BE WELL TRACKER
When we measure mental health and wellbeing, we do this using our own state-of-the-art platform called the Be Well Tracker.
Participants fill out a quick 10-15 minute questionnaire and get access to their own tailored wellbeing report when they are done. People can re-do their measurement as many times as they like.
Over time, we collate the individual results into reports, which can be done for specific organisations who for instance want to know about their wellbeing, or for general research purposes, such as the website you are watching.
Not all data we capture is provided on this website. If you want to learn more about the Tracker and how it can benefit you, your organisation or your research, send an email to

The below graphs show a snapshot of our findings: we highlighted a couple of key insights. These graphs form part of the Be Well Tracker dynamic data, which means that the results below will keep evolving over time. We will update this data every three months with new insights into Australia's mental health and wellbeing.
We will also publish an annual report that provides more granular insight into our measurement data. You can click on each of the graphs below to download the 2020 annual report.
