Recovering Quality of Life (ReQoL) has been developed to assess the quality of life of people with different mental health conditions. ReQoL is a brief outcome measure focusing on the process of recovery for users of mental health services and captures the concerns of service users on their quality of life. The ReQoL measures are generic and can be used across all mental health populations including common mental health problems, severe and complex, and psychotic disorders. They are suitable for mental health populations aged 16 and over in primary, secondary, and tertiary care.


The ReQoL measures

ReQoL has two versions: a brief 10-item measure (ReQoL-10), and a 20-item measure (ReQoL-20). The ReQoL measures cover the following themes: belonging and relationships, activity, hope, self-perception, choice control and autonomy, well-being and both versions contain a physical item. There is a mixture of positively and negatively worded items.  Summative scores are recommended where a high score represents better quality of life.  Items are scored on a five level Likert scale (none of the time, only occasionally, sometimes, often, most or all of the time). 




In the development of ReQoL, qualitative and quantitative techniques were implemented to produce a psychometrically robust measure using inputs from service users with a broad range of mental health diagnoses and severity. A significant contribution was received, at all stages, from governance groups including a stakeholder group, an advisory group, a scientific group, clinicians, and an expert user group.
