GWB: General well-being

General well-being (GWB) assesses the extent to which an individual feels good or content in themselves, in a way which may be independent of their work situation.  GWB both influences, and is influenced by work.  

Mental health problems, predominantly depression and anxiety disorders are common, and may have a major impact on the general well-being of the population and on the use of health service resources.  General feelings of well-being may make the difference between positive or negative evaluations of work. The GWB factor is concerned with issues of mood, depression and anxiety, life satisfaction, general quality of life, optimism and happiness.
