Mental health in Peru is one of the most serious problems that affects our society, one of them being anxiety, which can be present as a normal response to stress. But when it cannot be controlled, it can affect and interfere in people’s daily lives, so it is very important to detect it in time and go to counseling to get assessment. The psychological test “Beck’s Anxiety Inventory” allows us to obtain the patient’s level of anxiety, and together with the analysis of the psychologist the diagnosis is thus obtained; this process takes a long time, and this is why many times the test is not applied in the Psychological Consultory of the Universidad Nacional Mayor de San Marcos. The implementation of an Expert System through the CommonKADS methodology, using NetBeans tools for the graphical interface, the CLIPS program for the knowledge base and MySQL for the database, will reduce the time in which the diagnosis of anxiety is obtained. In this study we will confirm the reliability of the system by 90 %, so it is concluded that the Expert System will improve the response time in obtaining the diagnosis of anxiety, offering a faster service to university patients, being of great help to the psychologist and benefiting the Psychological Clinic of the university with the increased frequency of patients.
