How the Stress Test works

The test uses the Perceived Stress Scale (PSS). Originally created by Cohen et al (1983), it is a highly recognised psychological tool for measuring stress that's clinically validated and widely used.

The test measures the degree to which situations in your life are perceived as stressful by scoring how unpredictable, uncontrollable, and overloaded you feel your life to be.

The questions ask about your thoughts and feelings during the last month, are easy to understand and are of a general nature.
