The data was collected from Federal Investigation Agency (FIA), General Post Office (GPO), Sacred Heart High School, St. Anthony High School and Lahore High Court. Purposive sampling technique was used for data collection. Depression Anxiety Stress Scale (DASS) by Lovibond and Lovibond (1995) was individually administered to the survivals of Lahore suicide bombing. Written permission was granted by the author for use of DASS in the current research. The results suggested significant gender differences in the DASS total scores of the survivals of Lahore suicide bombing. The findings further indicated that female survivals scored higher on depression, anxiety and stress than their male counterparts. Moreover, results showed a highly positive significant relationship between stress and depression, stress and anxiety and depression and anxiety.
