The Network for Emotional Well-being: Science, Practice, and Measurement brings together leading experts from UCSF, UC Berkeley, and Harvard to create a cohesive transdisciplinary network of scientists interested in EWB. We are a collaborative initiative of research scientists funded by the National Institutes of Health to advance the scientific understanding and measurement of emotional well-being.​

Our goal is to enhance empirical rigor and consensus around the conceptual definition and measurement approaches, to promote synergy across methods and study paradigms, and to catalyze mechanistic intervention-relevant research that can yield reliable pathways for improving EWB.

The Network for Emotional Wellbeing was established in 2021 and is funded by the National Institutes of Health (U24AG072699).
