This online depression self test is designed to be a guide, not to make a definite diagnosis. It might be helpful to print it out and bring it with you to your doctor or counseling appointment.
Check the box next to each item that applies to you most of the time. There are 32 listed here. When you get to the bottom, count the number of checks you have.
If you checked fewer than 5 boxes, this is within the normal range.
5-10 boxes may indicate the presence of mild depression.
10-15 boxes may indicate the presence of moderate to marked depression.
If you checked more than 15 boxes, this suggests the presence of severe to extreme depression. Please talk to someone: a doctor, counselor or friend.
