Change in Depression and Anxiety
Depression and anxiety will be measured using the Hospital Anxiety Depression Scale (HADS); The HADS is a 14-item self-rated questionnaire, consisting of two 7-item subscales. It was developed to identify anxiety and depression in non-psychiatric medical outpatients. Each item on the HADS is scored from 0 (no problem) to 3 (maximum distress). The HADS will be administered within 2 weeks of completing each exercise program.
