Stress Self-Assessment

This self-assessment is to make you aware of your response to stress. Think about how you felt over the last 2-3 months.  The questions ask about the common feelings, behaviours and physical reactions to stress. These are associated often with our “fight or flight” response. However, this is just a general guide. Please be aware some of the symptoms may be as a response to other medical conditions.

Complete the 18 questions below to assess your stress. At the end you will then receive a short assessment of your current stress level. You can enter your email address and name to receive more information about managing your stress.
