Depression Screening Quiz
Instructions: The 18 items below refer to how you have felt and behaved DURING THE PAST WEEK. For each item, indicate the extent to which it is true, by checking the appropriate box next to the item.
You can take this test once to see if you may have depression, or take it on a weekly basis to track your mood. It also might be used to show your doctor how your symptoms have changed from one visit to the next. Changes of five or more points are significant. This scale is not designed to make a diagnosis of depression or take the place of a professional diagnosis. If you suspect that you are depressed, please consult with a mental health professional as soon as possible.
