DASS Test with Proactive Health & Movement

The DASS-21 is the short form of the DASS-42, a self-report scale designed to measure the negative emotional states of depression, anxiety and stress. This tool can be used to help identify who will likely benefit from consulting with a Pscyhologist and is not used as a diagnostic tool.

Please read each statement and choose a number 0, 1, 2 or 3 that 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. Below is a Scoring Guide to help assist in identifying where you sit:

Note: For people who may be completing this test who are not current existing clients of our practice, please be mindful to understand that the scoring system (displayed in the table above) has been modified to help you understand if you would benefit from consulting with a psychologist.
