Generalized anxiety disorder affects 6.8 million American adults each year and causes overwhelming distress. This self-assessment can help people identify if they have the condition.
Generalized anxiety disorder is a type of anxiety disorder and one of the most common mental conditions people face. The disorder involves overwhelming stress or worry that can impact a person’s mood and functionality. According to the Anxiety and Depression Association of America, generalized anxiety disorder affects 6.8 million American adults each year. That’s why “Do I have generalized anxiety?” is a common question.
The overwhelming fear of bad events occurring in a person’s life can have debilitating effects. People may struggle to complete basic daily tasks, such as school assignments or house chores. With treatment, people can learn to manage their anxiousness and have a higher quality of life. However, identifying the presence of generalized anxiety is key to seeking help for the disorder.
The Recovery Village created an online assessment to help people determine if they have a generalized anxiety disorder.
The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, 5th edition (DSM-5) lists the diagnostic criteria for generalized anxiety disorder. Using the information from the DSM-5, The Recovery Village developed a generalized anxiety disorder quiz.
The results of the questionnaire cannot replace a medical diagnosis from a mental health professional. Use the findings to determine if you are likely of having generalized anxiety disorder. After taking the quiz, consider speaking with a mental health professional. If your anxiety is connected to substance abuse, call The Recovery Village for information about addiction treatment that includes medical care for mental conditions.
The questions in the generalized anxiety disorder quiz pertain to the recent presence of associated symptoms.
