For my original Research I have been using professional mental health screenings sent to me by my interviewee (Dr. Ina Stephens) at the UVA pediatric center, on a weekly basis I will be filling them out after my mindfulness practices to show how they have affected me; here is a link to the surveys I’ve been using:
-Researching and utilizing effective mindfulness practices
-Consistently Practicing mindfulness as well as filling out the questionnaires
How these Screenings work:
-These 2 assessments are utilized by medical professionals to indicate the severity of a given patient’s mental health issues. In particular, the ones I have are a Generalized Anxiety Disorder Assessment (GAD-7) and the other is a Patient Health Questionnaire (PHQ-9).
