Depression Test

Depression Test


This application allows users to us the PHQ-9 self-questionnaire to quickly self-test whether they might have major depression. Additionally it provides users with a severity score of their depressive symptoms. This involves nine easy to answer questions.

Depression is one of the most prevalent and treatable mental disorders. Diagnosis of depression is based on the presence of certain symptoms that significantly impair function for a certain duration. These symptoms are described in the DSM-IV, the diagnostic manual for mental disorders.

The PHQ-9 test consists of the actual nine criteria on which the diagnosis of DSM-IV depressive disorders is based. The diagnostic validity of the PHQ-9 is fully evidence based [1, 2]. The test has comparable sensitivity and specificity to many other extensive depression measures.

Please note: This self-test is meant to give you insight in your mood state. This test is explicitly not suitable for diagnosis. This test cannot replace professional help. When in doubt, please always contact your general practitioner. No rights can be derived from the results of this test.

Key words: depression, test, tracking, track, graph, psychiatry, disorder, major depression, stress, emotion, mood, happy, happiness, sad, down

I knew I had severe depression I am only 13. I have been depressed for a while. I have a lot of insecurities, my family makes fun of me, people at school male fun of me and I over all hate myself. I have wanted to kill myself quit a few times, and can't sleep. People tell me they will miss me if I kill myself but Idk if I believe them. This app helped prove my theory. I can't tell my parents though any advice on how to get rid of it withput my parents knowing.
