Online Depression Tests

The online depression tests listed below may give you an indication of whether your symptoms would be classified as clinical depression. However, the depression tests vary in detail and accuracy, and the only way to get a real diagnosis is to see your medical practitioner.

The table on the Signs of Depression page is what your practitioner is most likely to use in diagnosing you, and understanding depression is the first important step in beating depression.

It is for this reason that we recommend you complete the Learning Path, so that you can be fully aware of what depression is and what the research says is the best treatment.

Selected Online Depression Tests

We have selected these depression tests as they seem to be amongst the better ones 'out there'. However, remember that these are rough guides. By completing the Learning Path, you will be much better placed to test yourself about whether you are depressed, and more importantly, know what to do about it.

1. Online Depression Screening Test at the New York University School of Medicine - this link removed; on testing, just about everyone in the office came up as depressed! A bit over-sensitive this one.

2. Goldberg Depression Test Questionnaire at MentalhelpNet - this is the best test we have come accross

3. PsychologyNet's Depression Screen (currently offline)
