Sometimes it can be challenging to recognise or acknowledge that we are not feeling our best.

The self-assessment questionnaires below can help you to understand how you’ve been feeling over the last two weeks.

Questionnaire one looks at the common symptoms that are associated with low mood. 

Questionnaire two looks at the common symptoms that are associated with anxiety. 

You will get a different score for each questionnaire but need to complete both.  These scores are anonymous and will not be saved or sent to us at Keeping Well BLMK.

These questionnaires do not provide a clinical diagnosis but can help you to understand how you have been feeling. If you would like to discuss your scores, you can write them down and get in touch with us.

The questionnaires are not intended to replace a consultation with a GP.
