Your results on the K10 self-report measure fall into the MODERATE RANGE.
Your K10 results indicate that you’ve likely been experiencing moderate levels of psychological distress in the past four weeks. Psychological distress is when someone experiences deeply unpleasant feelings, symptoms, and/or experiences. Things like loneliness, job dissatisfaction and family-work conflict are common risk factors of psychological distress.
The K10 result is not a diagnosis. However, the symptoms you’re reporting are consistent with a diagnosis of anxiety and/or depression.
Mental health challenges are common and treatable.
