Stress is a reaction to a changing, demanding environment. Change happens all the time; stress is, in large part, what we feel when we are reacting to it. Stress is about our capacity to handle change. People's reaction to stress varies. Symptoms of Stress (pdf) contains a comprehensive list of the many different ways people may experience stress as well as a helpful worksheet.
Relaxation response, restructuring thoughts, and guided imagery are just a few of the techniques for stress management you will find in Reframing for Relaxation Techniques (pdf).
A self screening instrument can be a positive first step and a helpful tool for you to use to determine if your symptoms warrant making an appointment with a mental health professional. However, by itself the screening tool cannot diagnose problems and does not replace in any way a formal psychiatric or psychological evaluation or visit with your primary care physician. If you do make an appointment it may be helpful to bring the self-screening instrument in with you.
