Online resources can be very helpful in learning more about anxiety and other mental illnesses.
However, online sources--including online anxiety screening questionnaires--are not a substitute for an evaluation by a counselor or therapist.

If you or a friend need help, it is always best to meet with a mental health professional.
If you or a friend is in crisis, get help immediately.
