Are You Depressed? Take Our Online Depression Quiz

By: Dr. Stacey, Certified Psychologist

Mental health is a key part of your overall health. Brief screenings are the quickest way to determine if you should connect with a mental health professional.

We can go on and on about the symptoms of depression, the causes and treatments, etc. But, most people simply want to know: am I depressed? So, we decided to create a depression quiz to see if you are depressed and, if so, what level of depression you are feeling.* This depression quiz, which is based on the DSM V diagnostic criteria for a Major Depressive Episode, is completely anonymous & confidential. Immediately following the brief quiz you will see your results, recommendations, and key resources.
