Self-assessment of your level of anxiety & depression

This test is a tool associated with the good practice recommendation “Stopping tobacco consumption: from individual screening to maintaining abstinence”.

This scale (HAD – Hospital Anxiety and Depression scale ) is an instrument used to screen for anxiety and depressive disorders. It includes 14 items rated from 0 to 3. Seven questions relate to anxiety and seven others to the depressive dimension, thus allowing two scores to be obtained.

This test in no way serves as a diagnosis, it simply provides a basis for reflection and information on this subject. If this phenomenon impacts you negatively, get help from a professional.
