Anxiety and depression checklist (K10)
This simple checklist aims to measure whether you may have been affected by depression and anxiety during the past four weeks. The higher your score, the more likely you are to be experiencing depression and/or anxiety.
Your answers and results are completely confidential and we don’t store any of your information. After taking the test, you can print the results for your records or to give to your GP.
These questions relate to how you've been feeling over the past four weeks. Tick a box next to each question that best reflects your thoughts, feelings and behaviour.

Your responses will help us provide you with a score
- Based on this score, we'll tell you whether you fall into the low, medium or high range.
- We'll help you take the next step, with information and contacts so you can seek support.
- Please remember that this is not a diagnosis – only a health professional can provide that – but it can give you a better sense of how you're feeling.
