Istat BES calculates the value of the mental health index for the Italian regions. The mental health index is a measure of psychological distress obtained from the summary of the scores scored by each individual aged 14 and over with 5 questions extracted from the SF36 (36-Item Short Form Survey) questionnaire. The questions refer to the four main dimensions of mental health, namely: anxiety, depression, loss of behavioral or emotional control and psychological well-being. The index varies between 0 and 100, with better psychological well-being conditions as the value of the index increases.
