Depression is a common mental health condition that can lead a person to a downward spiral of negativity, hopelessness, fear, and sadness. Depression can also lead to physical symptoms such as changes in appetite and sleep patterns, fatigue, and difficulties with concentration and decision-making. Depression can be caused by a combination of genetic, environmental, and psychological factors and can significantly impact a person's quality of life.
The depression test is a self-assessment tool to help identify the presence and severity of symptoms of depression. It consists of 10 questions that ask about common symptoms of depression, such as feelings of sadness, loss of interest in activities, changes in appetite and sleep patterns, fatigue, trouble concentrating, hopelessness, physical symptoms, irritability, anxiety, and more. You are asked to rate your symptoms on a scale of 0 to 100 with higher scores indicating a higher severity of symptoms. The results of the questionnaire can provide an initial understanding of the presence and severity of depression symptoms to take action to fight it in time.
