Do your loved ones say you’re too hard on yourself?
Do you notice that you’re avoiding things, especially anything and everything that could be uncomfortable?
Maybe you’ve tried to be more positive and confident but it’s so difficult to shake the anxious feeling. If so, you’ve probably wondered what might be the cause of such uncomfortable experiences.
If you’re curious to know if you have anxiety, we suggest that you take this brief, self-administered quiz as a screening tool. It’s easy to use and can help measure the likelihood and severity of generalized anxiety disorder (GAD), the most common type of anxiety disorder. [1, 2]
The self-administered, 7 item quiz uses some of the DSM-V criteria for GAD to identify probable cases of GAD along with measuring anxiety symptom severity. It can also be used as a screening tool for panic disorder, social anxiety, and PTSD.
A formal anxiety diagnosis requires a licensed mental health professional. Therefore, this quiz does not replace mental health assessment and treatment.
