Generalized Anxiety


You may be wondering if the symptoms you have been experiencing are symptoms of generalized anxiety disorder (GAD). Here is a quick self-test you can take to learn more about the symptoms and whether or not you might have GAD.

The symptoms we include in the generalized anxiety disorder questionnaire are based on the American Psychiatric Association's Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fourth Edition or DSM-IV. This is the manual that mental health providers use to determine whether or not their patients have a particular disorder. We have also included questions based on The National Institute of Mental Health's Generalized Anxiety Disorder booklet.

To be considered GAD, you must have three or more symptoms as indicated in the questionnaire.

You must be experiencing them more days than not, for six months or longer. Additionally, the symptoms must be interfering in your normal routines, work or school, and/or social activities. However, although these are the "official" criteria for GAD, if you are having any kind of disruptive symptoms or feel that you are overly or excessively anxious, you should talk to your doctor or another trusted healthcare provider.

This  web site is NOT designed to respond to suicide crisis. If you believe you are at risk for suicide, dial "911" or go immediately to the nearest hospital Emergency Room for an evaluation.
