5. MENTAL HEALTH AND WELLBEING 5.1. SINGLE ITEM INDICATOR A top-level broad overview of mental wellbeing was established using an item that asked respondents to indicate whether they had experienced feelings of stress, low mood, anxiety, or other difficulties with their health and wellbeing over the last 12 months. 80% of respondents from Thames Valley Police indicated that they had experienced feelings of stress, low mood, anxiety, or other difficulties with their health and wellbeing over the last 12 months. 91% also indicated that these feelings were caused, or made worse by work. 5.2. MENTAL WELLBEING Mental wellbeing can be broadly conceptualized as having two dimensions. The first concerns positive affect (i.e. pleasurable aspects of wellbeing such as feelings of optimism, cheerfulness, and relaxation). The second concerns psychological functioning (i.e. such as clear thinking, self-acceptance, personal development, competence, and autonomy). To investigate mental wellbeing in more detail the two-dimensional structure of mental wellbeing described above was assessed using the short Warwick-Edinburgh Mental Wellbeing Scale. ix The use of this scale, which has been widely used in a number of settings, helps us to measure the incidence of wellbeing in the police in a reliable way, allowing credible comparisons. The scale asks individuals to rate their experience during the last two weeks for seven positively framed statements. Findings for the items for the short Warwick-Edinburgh Mental Wellbeing Scale for Thames Valley Police are presented in Figure 5 alongside those for the general public. 5.3. HELP SEEKING A question was applied to identify those who had ever sought help for feelings of stress, low mood, anxiety, or any other difficulties with mental health and wellbeing. Examples of sources of help were provided including GP, occupational health department, psychologist, therapist, and counsellor. 38% of Thames Valley Police respondents had previously sought help for feelings of stress, low mood, anxiety or other difficulties with their mental health and wellbeing, of which 50% had done so within the last 12 months.
