Perceived Stress Scale

The questions in this scale ask you about your feelings and thoughts during THE LAST MONTH. In each case, you will be asked to indicate your response by indicating HOW OFTEN you felt or thought a certain way. Although some of the questions are similar, there are differences between them and you should treat each one as a separate question. The best approach is to answer fairly quickly. That is, don’t try to count up the number of times you felt a particular way, but rather indicate the alternative that seems like a reasonable estimate. 0 = Never 1 = Almost Never 2 = Sometimes 3 = Fairly Often 4 = Very Often 0=Never 1=Very rarely 2=Rarely 3=Sometimes 4=Often 5=Very often
  • Date Format: MM slash DD slash YYYY
  • Other indicators of being over stressed or approaching burnout for me are:
  •  

    Score of 0 -15: You are doing well.

     

    Score of 16 - 25: Some attention needed, you may be a candidate.

     

  • Warning!
    Score above 25 you may be a candidate.
