Screening Tool: Anxiety Problems (7 question screener [GAD-7])
This survey is designed to provide a quick assessment of whether you might have signs and symptoms of anxiety. However, no test is 100% accurate. No matter what your score is, you should seek help from a health professional if you have any concerns about yourself or your loved ones.
The questionnaire used here is the GAD-7 (Generalized Anxiety Disorder-7 item). Although this questionnaire is used mostly to detect one general anxiety condition, it can also help detect panic disorder, social anxiety disorder, and post-traumatic stress disorder.
In the last 2-weeks, how often have you been bothered by the following problems?
