Test Your Depression Anxiety Stress Severity
Everyone struggles from time to time. This depression test is the well-respected DASS21. It’s a way to measure your current response to questions and situations and reflect on where you sit on the scale. To be clear, this is not a diagnostic tool for our depression treatment programs but it may give you assistance in identifying certain depression, anxiety, and stress triggers in your life and relationships. While this is not a diagnostic tool it does give me insights into how you are responding to certain situations and provides guidance as to how we might proceed with treating depression or anxiety. It can also help me to suggest tools to deal with and overcome stress.
The DASS21 Depression Test
Please read each statement and select a number 0, 1, 2 or 3 which indicates how much the statement applied to you
over the past week. There are no right or wrong answers. Do not spend too much time on any statement.
The rating scale is as follows:
0 - Did not apply to me at all - NEVER
1 - Applied to me to some degree, or some of the time - SOMETIMES
2 - Applied to me to a considerable degree, or a good part of time - OFTEN
3 - Applied to me very much, or most of the time - ALMOST ALWAYS
The DASS is a quantitative measure of distress along the 3 axes of depression, anxiety
and stress. It is not a categorical measure of clinical diagnosis.
