Online Stress Test

Is stress getting to you? Find out how stressed you really are by taking this online stress screening test.

While we all face different kinds of stress, too much stress or continued stress over a long period of time can have serious negative effects on your mental and physical health. Use the results to decide if you need to see a doctor or other mental health professional to further discuss your stress and anxiety levels. Relaxation techniques for relief of stress and anxiety may also be helpful.
