The current study intended to validate the Mental Health Continuum-Short Form (MHC-SF) and Flourishing Scale (FS) in the Malay language. The scales of MHC-SF and FS are used to measure emotional, social, and psychological well- being. Both instruments have been employed in assessing the flourishing mental health and positive human functioning of university students. A total of 131 undergraduate students (29 males and 102 females) from a public university in Sabah aged 19-26 years old participated in the study. Partial least squares-structural equation modeling (PLS-SEM) is used to generate the result of the measurement model. The findings showed that the MHC-SF and FS in the Malay language demonstrated sufficient convergent and discriminant validity. The level of internal consistency for MHC-SF and FS was at an acceptable level. Both Malay versions of MHC-SF and FS have been proven as valid and reliable instruments to be used in the contexts of public undergraduate students in Malaysia, particularly in the state of Sabah.
