DASS-21: Depression, Anxiety, Stress Scale



  • Megan Clifford

    Hey Ryan-


    Thanks for sharing all of your resources!  I am new to private practice coming from higher ed counseling. These are super helpful for me to have so I don't have to reinvent the wheel or search and download everything myself!

    I'm ALL ABOUT not reinventing the wheel.  I just wish there were a more efficient way for SP forms to be shared.

    When I click on the link I get the pdf of the scoring, is there a way to get the form that you transcribed into SP? This is terrific, thank you for sharing!

    Unfortunately, there is no way to import a form into SP. You will have to recreate the form in your account until the powers that be at SP decide to add it to the template library.

    The one they have in the template library is useless without the scoring option.  None of their forms (nor buildable templates) have the option to score in SP - I wish they had a "Sum" function!  Thanks, Ryan, for your hard work in finding this form fill DASS21!     :)

    I highly agree with Alice!  I am using SP to streamline my process, and because I cannot auto sum it increases my work time!

    Why don't all of my forms, etc. show up when i try to share new form/questionnaire with an existing client? How do I get all forms to be accessible to "share" or "share new". Honestly, SP can be so frustrating and such poor UX. I would switch to another platform if anyone knew of a slightly better one.

    Hi Bart - Prior to sharing forms with your clients, check to see that you've enabled all these forms to be shared. Follow these steps: 

    First, go to Settings > Notes and Forms and make sure that all the templates you'd like to send to clients to fill out are listed under Intake Forms. If they're not, click on the template title, navigate to the dropdown menu at the top of the page and select Intake Form from the Template Type options. Save your changes.

    If you'd like to send a template in your Template Library, you'll have to navigate to this tab, then click on the + icon next to the template to add it to "My Notes & Forms." If this template isn't an Intake Form, click on it and change the Template Type.

    Next, go to Settings > Client Portal > Shared Documents and Files and make sure you've checked the box to include each of the relevant Consent Documents > Save.

    If you've done all of the above and you still can't access the Intake Form Template when hitting Share on your client's page, then please submit a Help Request from your SimplePractice account. Click on the "?" icon to the bottom right > Get Help > Ask Question > Email. You can also click here to submit a Help Request: SimplePractice Help Request Form.
