Self Assessment for Mental Health

Check your mental health with this quick, confidential, and clinically validated self-assessment.

  • Feeling stressed, anxious, depressed?
  • Something is not quite right but you’re not sure if therapy is for you?

Take this test to figure out whether you are showing any of the warning signs and to help you decide what to do next. We use the NICE approved and scientifically validated PHQ-9 and GAD-7 tests, which are used in the NHS. These self-tests are for people over 18 years of age. They are not intended to replace a consultation with a mental health expert or GP.

How have you been feeling lately?

Test for Depression:

Low mood or feeling on edge are common experiences for us all when we are going through a 'rough patch'. But when it comes to emotions, it can also be hard to recognise or admit that we're not 100% right.

Depression is particularly difficult to identify because it lowers self-esteem and undermines confidence in your own judgment. Ironically, just when we need help most we may be more likely to think we’re “just making a fuss about nothing”.

Test for Stress & Anxiety:

Been feeling nervous, anxious or on edge?

Think about the last two weeks, rather than just today or yesterday. 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 has been a problem for you and how it impacts on your life.
