DASS (Modified) Anxiety Quiz


In our busy world, it is totally normal to experience a certain amount of anxiety and stress, and in some instances it can actually be a positive thing!

But when it persists, and that worry and stress become a constant weight on your shoulders, it’s possible that your anxiety may have moved in to disordered territory.

The intensity and frequency of the stress and worry are almost always totally out of proportion to the actual likelihood that the feared events will even happen, and can become limiting and interfere with basic functioning when left unchecked.

This quiz is designed to help you assess whether you are suffering from Anxiety.
