The HADS measures score complaints of anxiety and depression without involving physical complaints. The scale examines feelings in the past four weeks and consists of an anxiety scale and a depression scale with 7 items each. The higher a patient scores on this questionnaire, the more complaints he / she experiences. Note: In addition to the four-week time frame, there is also a version that starts from the last week.
