Anxiety Quiz


The Anxiety Quiz is an easy and anonymous way of finding out about your current level of anxiety. It takes less than 2 minutes to complete and will provide you with feedback about the level of your anxiety symptoms as well as some tips which may help. Your results may also indicate whether you might benefit from treatment and help you to decide whether completing a Online Screening Assessment for one of the MindSpot Treatment Courses might be worth considering.

Over the last 2 weeks, how often have you been bothered by any of the following problems?

You are healthy with no symptoms of anxiety reported

We recommend that you continue to look after yourself. Things that help people stay well include:

  • Staying active by doing the things you enjoy and that are good for you
  • Staying in regular touch with supportive people
  • Staying as physically healthy as you can
  • Keeping your thoughts and expectations realistic

Your symptoms are mild

Your score indicates you may have mild symptoms of anxiety. This often happens when things start to get busy, and when we feel that we have more things to manage than we might like. Some people find that mild anxiety helps them to stay motivated. But, it is also helpful to think about mild anxiety as a warning signal: it tells us that we need to do something to stay healthy.

Things that can help resolve mild anxiety include:

  • Write a list of the tasks you need to do, and then divide it into:
    • The things you can do yourself (then write down when you will do each thing)
    • Things you can’t do yourself (then, write down who you can get to help you complete the task, or accept that you can’t do anything about it)
  • Talk to friends to get sensible advice about how they cope
  • Keep your thoughts and expectations realistic
  • Stay active by doing the things you enjoy and that are good for you
  • Stay in regular touch with good people
  • Stay as physically healthy as you can

Next Steps

We invite you to do one or more of the following:

Your symptoms are moderate

People in this range of scores often have symptoms that need attention. Scores in the moderate range are often found in people who have a diagnosis of an anxiety disorder. Moderate anxiety is a signal that we need to do something or change something around us, so that our level of anxiety doesn't become worse.

Things that can help resolve moderate anxiety include:

  • Getting an assessment by a health professional, like a GP, psychologist, or psychiatrist, and getting advice about treatment
  • Starting treatment as soon as possible. Treatments that work for moderate anxiety include psychological treatment
  • Avoiding alcohol and drugs
  • Talking to friends to get sensible advice about how they cope
  • Keeping your thoughts and expectations realistic
  • Staying active by doing the things you enjoy and that are good for you
  • Staying in regular touch with good people
  • Staying as physically healthy as you can

Next Steps

We invite you to do one or more of the following:

Your symptoms are in a severe range

We know that people with symptoms in severe range are often having a very difficult time. We hope you are doing okay.

People with severe scores are at high risk of developing an anxiety disorder. We strongly recommend that you seek assessment and treatment from a health professional as soon as you can. People can recover from anxiety. Please do something to address your symptoms today.
