Generalised Anxiety Disorder Questionnaire

The Generalised Anxiety Disorder Questionnaire is a type of ASSESSMENT TOOL.

Although designed primarily as a screening and severity measure for Generalised Anxiety Disorder, the Generalised Anxiety Disorder Questionnaire can also be used to screen and monitor for three other common anxiety disorders:

The index scores are as follows:

0 - 4No Anxiety
5 - 10Mild Anxiety
11 - 15Moderate Anxiety
15 - 21Severe Anxiety

If one or two values are missing from the score, then they can be substituted with the average score of the non-missing items. Questionnaires with more than two missing values should be disregarded. 

The recommended cut off score for the (seven item) Generalised Anxiety Disorder Questionnaire is 7, so a PERSON scoring 8 or above will be considered to be suffering from clinically significant anxiety symptoms.
