The Perceived Stress Scale - Children (PSS-C) is particularly valuable for schools due to its capacity to provide an efficient and effective assessment of stress levels in students. The survey generates individual scores that offer insights into each student's perceived stress, aiding in the early identification of stress-related challenges. This early identification is crucial for implementing timely and appropriate interventions, as stress has been linked to poorer academic outcomes, reduced functional performance at home, and potential long-term health issues. The ability to produce immediate analyses and compare data over time allows schools to monitor progress and assess the impact of interventions. The breakdown into sub-domains, namely Stressors and Non-Buffers, offers a nuanced understanding of the factors contributing to stress, allowing for targeted support strategies. As chronic stress becomes increasingly linked to adverse outcomes in academic success and overall wellbeing, the PSS-C serves as a useful tool for schools to proactively address and manage stress, contributing to a healthier and more supportive learning environment.
