Mental Well-being Impact Assessment (MWIA)

Mental Well-being Impact Assessment (MWIA) is a pioneering methodology that enables organisations, communities, and  projects to understand and demonstrate their impact on mental well-being. It is based on the evidence base on the determinants of mental well-being and on health impact assessment methodology.
