The self assessment tools below can help if you are unsure whether you should seek support to talk to someone.  Tool 1 looks at the common symptoms that are associated with low mood.  Tool 2 looks at the common symptoms that are associated with anxiety.  
You will get a different score for each tool but need complete them both.  

These tools do not provide a clinical diagnosis but can help understand your symptoms and if you would benefit from support from psychological services.

They are anonymous and no personal data is saved.
