Depression Test

I’ve put together a small depression test that in no way substitutes for a doctor’s diagnosis but may give you the confidence to go to your doctor and tell them how you feel.

You can see the symptoms of depression here or find out what is depression here. Generally, feelings of hopelessness and loss of interest in things can denote depression. Your doctor may want to run some blood tests on you to make sure you are not low in iron or vitamin D, which can cause depression.

The test is for informational purposes only and not a diagnosis tool, that is what your doctor is for, please see them as soon as possible.

In the meantime, while you are waiting for your appointment, it might be worth reading some of my articles on depression and anxiety, as this could help you cope with symptoms.
