“Do I have depression?” Test yourself quickly here!
How can you know if you are depressed? Or if someone you love is?
Here’s a free self-test to help you answer this question. And it won’t even take more than a minute!
This is NOT the same as actually going to see a doctor: the scores don’t represent a diagnosis. But I find that, for people who’re uncertain about if they might need to see a doctor, this test is one way to help them see they probably should.
And one more thing: even if you score high, don’t get discouraged. Knowing that there is a problem is always a good thing, far better than not knowing. Knowing that the problem has a real name (and you aren’t a freak) is even better still.
