There are many symptoms of depression, including low mood, feelings of hopelessness, low self-esteem, lack of energy, and problems with sleep. The more symptoms someone has, the more likely they are to be depressed.

This test will help you to assess whether you could be suffering from depression. When completing the above questions, it is helpful to think about how they have applied to you over the last few weeks or months. This test will help identify if you might be suffering from depression; the test is an indicator only and not meant to replace a full assessment by a qualified clinician. This test was adapted from Beck’s Depression Inventory.

Please note that this questionnaire is not designed for people to complete without any input from their healthcare professional.

Please contact your doctor if you are:

  • Concerned about your mood; or
  • Have completed this questionnaire and it indicates that you may be depressed.

If you are having any thoughts of self-harm, please read our leaflet on Dealing with Suicidal Thoughts, which gives advice on all the help that is available. If you need FREE help or are in crisis, please contact the National Helpline about mental or substance use disorders, prevention, treatment, and recovery in English and Spanish.
