Depression Screening

Online screening is one of the quickest and easiest ways to determine whether you are experiencing symptoms of depression

Mental health conditions—such as depression—are real, common, and treatable. Answering these questions can help you to determine whether you are experiencing symptoms of depression.

Over the last 2 weeks, how often have you been bothered by any of the following problems?

Little interest or pleasure in doing things?
Feeling down, depressed, or hopeless?
Trouble falling or staying asleep, or sleeping too much?
Feeling tired or having little energy?
Poor appetite or overeating?
Feeling bad about yourself—or that you are a failure or have let yourself or your family down?
Trouble concentrating on things, such as reading the newspaper or watching television?
Moving or speaking so slowly that other people could have noticed? Or the opposite—being so fidgety or restless that you have been moving around a lot more than usual?
Thoughts that you would be better off dead, or of hurting yourself in some way?

This screening uses a standard, recognized assessment tool, the Patient Health Questionnaire (PHQ-9). However, it should not be used to replace the recommendations and/or diagnoses provided by a medical or mental health professional.

We encourage you to share your results with a health care professional who can help you determine the next steps that are right for you.
