Mental Wellness Self-Assessment

Mental Wellness Self-Assessment

Arthritis not only affects our bodies, but also takes a toll on our minds. Coping with symptoms like chronic pain, inflammation, and fatigue, as well as the social and economic impact of arthritis on your life, may cause or contribute to stress, anxiety and depression. Looking after our minds is just important as caring for our bodies, as factors such as stress can significantly influence how we experience arthritis pain.

Take our mental health quiz to assess your emotional wellness and find out if you may benefit from additional resources or talking with professionals.

Select which answer more accurately reflects your feelings.
