How Does Depression Self Testing Work?

Depression tests are typically self-reported assessments, either written or verbal, which attempt to measure a person's internal experience regarding mood, thoughts, behavior and physical health. These tests can help diagnose depression and other mental health issues.

The questions are designed to help detect any signs of clinical depression. For example, they may ask about how often the individual feels irritable or hopeless, how much sleep they get each night, what they do when they feel down, or if they have any ideas or thoughts of hurting themselves.

Depending on an individual's responses to these questions, the test can help identify whether further evaluation by an experienced mental health professional is needed. In addition to providing a snapshot of the individual's current state of mental health, depression tests also help professionals track changes in an individual’s mood over time so that any warning signs can be detected quickly and appropriate action taken.
