Our mental health is often a mystery to us: we typically don’t have ready insight into what it looks like on an ongoing basis. And this doesn’t just apply to individuals: organisations and even the government are lacking vital data on the wellbeing of our people.
The Be Well Tracker was created to help fill this knowledge gap in the public understanding of our mental health and wellbeing: a knowledge gap that impacts the wellbeing decisions we make as individuals, organisations and the wider community.
Getting insight into our mental health and wellbeing (not just symptoms of illness) using reliable scientific assessment tools is a vital step in changing our collective wellbeing. Knowledge is key to knowing where to intervene and where to further invest.
This isn’t rocket science: individuals and organisations have increasingly been looking for reliable ways to gain insight into the state of their mental health and wellbeing.
We are on a mission to help people and organisations get these valuable insights. By doing this on an ongoing basis we are also creating a snapshot of Australia's wellbeing while we are at it.
Our team of academic researchers investigated the scientific literature for valid and reliable scales that are easy-to-use and interpret, and can provide benchmarks, keeping in mind that wellbeing needs differ for each individual and organisation.
The result is a flexible measurement tool that provides real-time reports for individuals and powers our ability to provide organisational insights based on scientific principles. Robust, Valid and Reliable.
The Measurement philosophy
By using the Tracker, you will rely on a scientific approach to measuring mental health and wellbeing.
Everything in the Tracker is tested and validated, all the while allowing flexibility to tailor to the unique needs of organisations. This flexibility will expand more and more over the course of 2021, so stay tuned.

Be Well Co Pty Ltd is a spin-out from the South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute (SAHMRI). We were set up to translate the research that SAHMRI and their collaborators (including Flinders University) conduct on the Be Well Plan and the Be Well Tracker. We are an independent organisation, but are still strongly tied to research institutes, with a portion of proceeds feeding back into vital research into mental health and wellbeing.
