The GAD-7 is a 7-item anxiety scales that measures common symptoms associated with generalized anxiety disorder in the last two weeks [@spitzer2006]. Each item ranges from 0 “not at all” to 3 “nearly every day”, resulting in a total score of 0-21.
The GAD-7 has excellent internal consistency (Cronbach’s = 0.92) and convergent validity (correlation with the Beck Anxiety Inventory r = 0.72) [@spitzer2006].
