Stress, anxiety and depression

Mood self-assessment quiz


The mood self-assessment quiz uses questions taken from tests often used by GPs to assess whether someone is anxious or depressed. It has been designed to recommend further reading and resources that may help you better understand how you feel.

You may find it useful to monitor the ups and downs of your mood by revisiting these questions from time to time. With each question, consider how you've been feeling over the last two weeks. You may also want to write down your scores each time, but please note that a doctor will not be able to make a diagnosis based on the changes you've recorded.

Remember that this self-assessment is not designed to replace a consultation with your GP. However, if after taking the quiz you have concerns about your mental wellbeing, it might be useful to take a printout of your results along to your GP.
