The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) recommends screening adults ages 18 to 64 years for anxiety — including people who are pregnant or postpartum. USPSTF found insufficient evidence to recommend for or against screening for anxiety in adults age 65 and older. This recommendation only applies to people without recognized signs or symptoms of anxiety.
