What the results mean: The DASS-21 quantifies distress along the dimensions of depression, anxiety, and stress. It does not give a clinical diagnosis. Depression and anxiety have ranges of severity and the DASS-21 describes these ranges. For example, someone scoring a “mild” result has more symptoms than is average in the population but is probably still below the typical severity of someone seeking help (i.e. “mild” does not mean a mild level of disorder).
