What is it about?
The aim of this work is to begin initial steps in creating a quick, simple and accurate scale to measure the amount of overall perceived stress an individual is feeling at the time. An adult scale is already available but a scale that is suitable for 7-11 year olds does not currently exist in the same format.

Why is it important?
Our findings suggest that the scale is accessible and appropriate for measuring perceived stress in children aged 7-11 years. Further research needs to be undertaken to see whether this is valid and reliable in wider populations.
