The following are all depression indicators. This is not a scientific tool, but rather a way for you to identify contributing conditions in your life. Answer all the questions below thoughtfully to yourself with a yes or no answer.
The more of these questions which you answer yes indicates your level of probable depression. While a low probability does not mean that treatment might not be helpful, a higher score doesn’t necessarily mean formal treatment is required. But the higher the score, the greater the likelihood a formal treatment program may be helpful.
