Take our Depression Screen

Are you concerned that you or a loved one may be depressed? Answer the following to assess symptoms:

  1. Are you sad most days and most of the day?
  2. Are you unable to sleep though tired -- or sleep for 8+ hours and still not feel rested?
  3. Have you noticed a significant change in appetite -- either reduced appetite or eating a lot even when not hungry?
  4. Have you lost interest in activities you previously enjoyed?
  5. Do you feel the need to put on a mask of happiness around others?
  6. Do you find that even simple things seem to take too much energy these days?
  7. Do you feel hopeless about future success and helpless to change it?
  8. Have you had thoughts about dying or not caring if you live?
  9. Have you found yourself isolating, shutting down, and/or giving away important things?
  10. Have you noticed dark, negative or death-related talk arising in conversation, English papers, diary entries, and/or music you’re drawn to?
  11. Has a classmate or friend attempted or successfully completed suicide?

If you (or your loved one) answered “yes” to one or more of the above questions, depression may be a factor.

The good news is that depression is highly treatable. So, what now?

  3. Know when to seek help: Don’t hesitate to seek professional help if your (or your loved one’s) mood is not improving or if behavior becomes a risk to yourself or others. Suicidal thoughts or behaviors should be addressed by a professional immediately.
