We all feel worried or anxious sometimes – it might be about exam results, a job interview or even who’ll win the final of some sport match. This is a normal part of life and it’s actually necessary to help us avoid danger and perform at our best.
For some people, the feelings can be much more extreme. Anxiety is more than feeling stressed – it's a serious condition that makes day-to-day life difficult.
Take this self-test to see if Anxiety’s involved. This isn’t a diagnosis but it’ll help you figure out what might be the next steps to take next.
It helps to try to think about the last two weeks, rather than just when you felt very anxious or stressed. Also remember that this test is just one part of an assessment of whether anxiety might be a problem for you. There’s more to it, like getting feedback from people who know you well, and looking at how long anxiety’s been a problem for you and how it impacts on your life.
