The Happiness Tracker

Can you Help us to better understand what fosters the well-being of LSE students!

This term, LSESU is launching the Happiness Tracker Project, a research project aimed at supporting LSE students with their mental health and well-being. Through a regularly distributed short questionnaire, we want to learn how LSE Students are feeling at different parts of the year, and what we can do to improve it.

How are you, really?

The Happiness Tracker will collect insights used to understand how we can reduce the amount of ‘unhappiness’ within our community and advocate for improved well-being support at the LSE. Collected data will be used to lobby LSE for better provisions and to realign the focus of the LSESU so that we can best serve our students.

How it works:

Once a week you will receive a survey asking you about your current happiness and wellbeing levels. You will be asked the answer each question on a scale from 1 - 5. 

1 = Not at all 

2= Not very

3 = Neutral 

4 = Somewhat 

5 = Very 

Depending on your answers we may direct you to some useful resources that can help you improve your mental health.

We are particularly interested in:

  • How different student demographics (across levels of study, department, gender, nationality, race, religious belief, disability, sexuality, etc.) might be experiencing their ‘wellness’ at different points in the year
  • The awareness of and efficacy of mental health measures available at the LSE right now
  • How best to target our resources and communications in regard to students’ well-being.
