ZubrickAbstract Issue addressed: The development of an integrated set of mental health promotion indicators at individual, organisational and community levels. Discussion: There is increasing recognition that the implementation of effective and sustainable strategies for the promotion of mental health and well-being requires the development of indicators to support priority setting, establishing targets and measuring progress. This article aims to contribute to this task by bringing together recent work on individual, organisational and community indicators that shows progress in the promotion of mental health and well-being. Conclusions: An initial set of indicators is proposed, informed by current knowledge from research and practice settings. Key words: . So What? An important next step will be the development of a resource to support a broad range of organisations to advance planning and practices in this area. This work will require integration of indicator sets existing across disciplines and paradigms in order to ensure that the best possible indicators are established to capture the complex range of factors and interventions relevant to the promotion of mental health and well-being.
