The PMH-scale was originally developed by Lutz et al. (1992a, unpublished manuscript) in order to provide a brief, unidimensional and person-centred instrument to assess positive mental health. In the present series of studies the PMH-scale was confirmed to be a unidimensional self-report instrument with high internal consistency, good retest-reliability, scalar invariance across samples and over time, good convergent and discriminant validity as well as sensitivity to therapeutic change in a series samples from very different backgrounds.
The unidimensional structure of the PMH-scale suggests that it indeed measures a single concept. The equivalence tests indicate that the PMH-scale can be validly used to compare PMH-scale scores over groups and across time. The good test-retest reliability for the retest samples and the moderate correlation between the first and second measure for the psychosomatic patient group and Dresden sample suggests that the PMH-scale is both: stable over time and sensitive to change. With only nine items, the PMH-scale is brief and easy to interpret.
Summing the all item.
Reliability and Validity
The test-retest reliability of the PMH-scale was found to be .81 (p < .01) in retest sample 1 and .77 (p < .001) in retest sample 2. With a time lag of four weeks (retest sample 3), a test-retest reliability of .74 resulted (p < .001). Thus, the test-retest reliability is good. he internal consistency of the PMH-scale was thus high and similar across different samples.
The scale is available in 12 languages.
