THE PILOT

In 2021-2022, Happiness Initiative ran a research pilot study to measure the impact of the Well-being Circles programme.

 

The study employed a Waitlist Randomised Controlled Trial to measure the impact of the programme.

 

At the end of the 12-session intervention period, 142 Wave 1 participants (in the Intervention group) were measured against 163 Wave 2 participants (in the Control group).

Here are the results.

Significant Improvement in

Well-being Skills &

Well-being Outcomes

All 11 measures of Well-Being Skills and all 9 measures of Well-Being Outcomes showed significant improvement in the Intervention group over the Control group after the 12-session intervention.

Effects are Sustained 6 Months After the Programme Ended

All 11 measures of Well-Being Skills and 9 measures of Well-Being Outcomes are sustained 6 months after the programme has ended. The  measures also remained significantly better than before the programme started, with only one exception.

Deep Impact on Self with a Positive Spill-Over Effect on Community, Family & Work

Most of the participants engaged in more prosocial behaviours after the programme. Those who who parents reported being better parents, and those who are working promoted well-being at their workplaces.

shared our innermost thoughts

and feelings ... gave us comfort

and clarity.

– Participant A

SOCIAL SUPPORT

I was recovering from a painful breakup at the time, and also struggling with issues at work, and so being able to make friends outside of my previous relationship was something significant for me.

Participant B

This program has been a wonderful blessing for my mental and emotional wellbeing. It's been an eye-opening journey, helping me understand myself better and providing practical tools to manage anxiety and stress effectively. But it's not just about personal growth; the program's community has been a remarkable source of connection and support. Being part of a group of individuals all striving for improved wellbeing has been truly uplifting and inspiring.
