Anxiety Disorders Test

Anxiety is a mental health condition characterized by feelings of nervousness and worry, along with an increased heart rate and rapid breathing. Anxiety is also often accompanied by trouble concentrating, difficulty sleeping, and avoidance behaviors. If left untreated, anxiety can cause significant impairment to well-being and functioning. Anxiety is one of the most common mental illnesses: Approximately 18% of the adult population is affected by an anxiety disorder in any given year.

This test combines multiple psychological instruments into one, to screen for five frequent anxiety disorders in adults: Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Social Phobia, Specific Phobia, Adult Separation Anxiety Disorder, and Panic Disorder/Agoraphobia.

The IDRlabs Anxiety Disorders Test (IDR-ADT©) was developed by IDRlabs International. The IDR-ADT is based on five psychological measurements: The General Anxiety Disorder-7 (GAD-7), the Social Phobia Inventory (SPIN), the Adult Separation Anxiety Questionnaire (ASA-27), the Panic and Agoraphobia Scale (PAS), and the Severity Measure for Specific Phobia (Adult). The IDR-ADT is not associated with any specific researchers in the field of psychopathology, or their affiliated research institutions.

These clinical instruments are intended for use by qualified professionals and researchers. The present test is intended for educational and entertainment purposes only.
