If you've been feeling out of sorts, you could have clinical depression that requires medical attention, or you could have a milder form of the blues that can be helped with seven instant mood boosters. Use this evaluation to help determine where your symptoms fall on the depression scale. You can print out the results and bring them to your doctor to discuss whether you might benefit from antidepressants or psychotherapy.
Note: This test is not designed to make a diagnosis of depression, which should be performed by your doctor. If you score above 30 or answer anything other than "A" on question No. 15, you should see your doctor to discuss your symptoms and possible treatments. Any change of 5 or more points, from one test to the next, indicates that your moods have changed significantly.
