Hey guys! I'm new on this site =) Do anyone know about some type of depression test? I've been looking around on Google, but I don't trust those I've found.
Have a great day =)
Hi, jenny43 and welcome to Depression Sanctuary! We have a free depression test on our sister site, Depression411. You can click here to go take the test.
Keep in mind that an online test can't really diagnose you with depression, but it can help you learn about its symptoms and get a good idea whether you might need to see a doctor for further evaluation.
If you do think you might be depressed, the best thing to do is to see a primary care physician for a checkup. Sometimes there are medical conditions and medication side effects which can cause you to have symptoms similar to depression. Your doctor will be able to rule these in or out and properly evaluate your symptoms. If it is determined that you have depression, your doctor can then either treat you him/herself or make a referral to an appropriate mental health professional.
