Abstract

Mental Health Continuum-Short Form is a scale to measure positive mental health. This study aimed to compare the validity source of the MHC-SF in Setswana and Indonesia. A literature review was used as a method to explore the validity source of the MHC-SF. Both MHC-SF scales have a good content validity and good internal structure which showed by the Confirmatory Factor Analysis that fulfilled the good fit criterion, whereas three factors namely Emotional Well-Being, Social Well-Being, and Psychological Well-Being were found to be the best construct of MHC-SF. Both MHC-SF scales showed good response and consequences of testing. The MHC-SF in Setswana has good convergent validity compared to the MHC-SF in Indonesian. The limitation of this study only compared two studies from two countries. Therefore, the implication of this study suggests that the MHC-SF in the Indonesian needs further validation. The future study can expand validation from various countries.
