Depression can feel like you’re at war with your mind and body.
You can feel sluggish, overly negative, and like there is no joy in life.
Maybe you’ve tried to be more positive and confident but it’s so difficult to shake this feeling. If so, you’ve probably wondered what might be the cause of such uncomfortable experiences.
If you’re curious to know if you have depression, we suggest that you take this brief, self-administered questionnaire as a screening tool. It’s easy to use and can help measure the likelihood and severity of depression, one of the most common types of mental disorders
The self-administered, 9 item quiz uses some of the DSM-V criteria for Major Depressive Disorder to identify probable cases of depression along with measuring symptom severity.
A formal depression diagnosis requires a licensed mental health professional. Therefore, this quiz does not replace mental health assessment and treatment.
