Abstract

BACKGROUND: In general, men seek psychological help less than women do. It could be that men find mental health benefits in other, more everyday, activities e.g. talking with their barber. This study aimed to develop questionnaires to measure the psychological benefits of (a) everyday activities of various kinds, and (b) visiting a hairstylist. METHODS: Cross-sectional online survey. 242 adults completed the questionnaires. Responses were analysed using standard questionnaire development methodology. RESULTS: The two questionnaires showed good psychometric properties in terms of good factor structure, internal reliability and construct validity. Conclusions: The two new questionnaires have been successfully applied to an online sample (see Roper & Barry, 2016). The WBEAS may prove useful in the assessment of various everyday activities such as Men’s Sheds.
