Personal Well-being Index (PWI)

Survivors of torture experience numerous psycho-social stressors that threaten individual well-being as they rebuild their lives in their new homes. The Personal Well-being Index (PWI) is an assessment for documenting, evaluating, and addressing the holistic needs of torture survivors.

The PWI shows six areas of need and four levels of need (in crisis, vulnerable, stable, and safe).
