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.

We have selected these depression tests as they seem to be amongst the better ones 'out there'. However, remember that these are rough guides.
