How Do I Know If Im Depressed - Quiz

Most of us feel sad, discouraged, or “down” once in a while; but for some people, this mood doesn’t go away. If you’re feeling like this for a sustained period - and it gets in the way of daily living - you may be experiencing depression. Taking the Self-Test is a good way to evaluate different aspects of your life at the moment. It can help identify whether you’re showing some of the warning signs of depression, and how to go about getting the help that’s right for you.
