The work carried out over the last twelve months has given us a deep insight into the issues of those we have interacted with. However when supporting a global community, we need to ensure a representative number of people and their experiences are included to truly deliver on our mission;
To support and promote positive mental health within the WordPress community.Big Orange Heart Mission
We want to take a holistic view at the state of well-being and mental health within the WordPress community in general. To accomplish this the first WordPress Community Mental Health & Well-Being Survey has been developed and you are now invited to take part.
With Big Orange Heart embracing the principles of open-source and transparency; the anonymous data collected via the survey will be open-sourced, enabling us to help deliver an overview of the current state of mental health and well-being within our community.
When you visit the survey you will be guided though three key sets of questions covering:
- Your general work environment
- Your general mental health & well-being
- Your specific work related mental health & well-being
No identifiable data is stored during the process of completing the survey.
The WordPress Community Mental Health & Well-being Survey 2019 is the means by which we can understand where to invest our resources to deliver the greatest benefit to you and other community members.
