Do I Have Depression? – Test

Have you been wondering, “Do I have depression?” Take the test below to help determine if you have a problem.

Most of us feel sad, discouraged, or feel “low” once in a while; but for some people, this mood doesn’t go away the next day or the next. If you are feeling consistently “down” and your lows are making it hard for you to function, you may be depressed. If you have been feeling like this for several weeks and it is making it hard for you to remain productive at work or in the home, if your mood is making it hard for you to do regular daily routine tasks, you may be experiencing depression. Taking the Self-Test is a good way to evaluate different aspects of your life at this current time. It can help identify whether you are experiencing some of the warning signs of depression. 

When answering the questions, choose the answer your feel best indicates how you have been feeling over the past two weeks.

Over the last two weeks…

1) Do you have little interest or pleasure in doing the things you usually enjoyed?
2) Are you overwhelmed and exhausted?
3) Do you struggle to get out of bed and get dressed every morning?
4) Do you feel guilty or blame yourself for everything?
5) Are you easily irritated?
6) Are you having difficulty concentrating or remembering things?
7) Do you sometimes wish you could just be invisible?
8) Do you have trouble falling or staying asleep, or sleeping too much?
9) Do you feel tired or having little energy most days?
10) Do you have poor appetite or overeat to cope with your stress?
11) Do you feel bad about yourself – or that you are a failure or have let yourself or your family down?
12) Do you have trouble concentrating on things, such as reading the newspaper or watching television?
13) Do you have little interest in shows you enjoyed watching?
14) Do you sometimes feel so hopeless and depressed, that you have thoughts of hurting yourself or ending your life?
