Do I Have Anxiety?
The GAD Anxiety Assessment Test is used by medical practitioners to assess levels of anxiety.
Everyone has a level of anxiety, as it is how we know to keep ourselves safe.
However, sometimes that anxiety level increases, disproportionately, and unnecessarily interferes with day to day life.
GAD7 Anxiety Assessment Test Scores
For each question, allocate your score based on how you’ve felt over the last 2 weeks:
- 0 = Not at all
- 1 = Several days
- 2 = More than half the days
- 3 = Nearly every day
What are the 7 Questions in the GAD7 Anxiety Assessment Test?
The 7 questions are, over the last 2 weeks, how often have you been:
- Feeling nervous, anxious, or on edge?
- Not being able to stop or control worrying?
- Worrying too much about different things?
- Trouble relaxing?
- Being so restless that it’s hard to sit still?
- Becoming easily annoyed or irritable?
- Feeling afraid as if something awful might happen?
It can also be useful to consider how difficult have these problems made it for you to do your work, take care of things at home, or get along with other people?
What Do the GAD7 Anxiety Test Results Mean?
Scores 0 to 5 suggests Minimal anxiety.
