Subjective well-being refers to the evaluations individuals make about their overall life satisfaction, happiness, and emotional experiences. It reflects their own personal perceptions and judgments about how happy and healthy they feel. Higher levels of subjective well-being are associated with better mental health, improved relationships, and greater productivity.

The WHO-5 Well-Being Index is a tool designed to measure an individual's subjective well-being. The scale evaluates one's positive mood, vitality, and general interest in life. It is widely used in clinical and non-clinical settings to assess an individual's mental health status.
