It's your Health. Be Wise.

What will the test tell me?

Your answers to these 7 questions are designed to help you see whether your anxiety is impacting your health (or could do so).

Your results are an indicator of your anxiety level. This tool is based on scientific study, but it is not intended to confirm a diagnosis.  As with any self-test, you are given insight into what you are feeling but the diagnosis and treatment of what you are experiencing should be left to health professionals.

Who is this anxiety quiz for?

Everyone worries and becomes nervous from time-to-time. Increasing anxiety levels can interfere with important aspects of your life, and if too severe, may become crippling.  

Anxiety afflicts more than 20 million Americans, making it one of the most common behavioral health issues in the U.S.

This tool is NOT meant for people under the age of 18.
