Rosenberg Self-Esteem Scale

This scale is extensively used in cross-cultural studies in up to 53 different nations. It is a 10-item scale that measures global self-worth by measuring both positive and negative feelings about the self. Low self-esteem is significantly related to depression, suicide ideation , victimisation , delinquency , eating disorders , and low happiness. This survey is therefore a highly valued indicator of a student's mental health; allowing staff to identify and, as a result, direct help to any student who registers as having low self-esteem.
