Think you’re stressed?
Find out how stressed you really are by taking our little quiz. This test is based on the Social Readjustment Rating Scale developed by Thomas H. Holmes and Richard H. Rahe. According to Rahe and Holmes, different life events can contribute to your stress levels. And the more stress you have, the more vulnerable you are to mental health problems as well as illnesses.

To see how high (or low) your stress levels are, read over each of the life situations below and select all those that apply to you right now or have occurred within the last 12 months. Then click Submit to find out your score.
