Abstract: This poster presents the results of an online survey study that aims to develop and validate a single-item stress scale with visual indicators (faces). Participants were able to match the visual indicators we developed to proper stress levels 90% of the times or more frequently. The single-item stress scale has great potential to facilitate mHealth interventions targeting stress management.

Learning Objective 1: After participating in this session, the learner should be better aware of the potential benefits of using the simple stress scale for designing mHealth interventions for stress management.
