Depression test

Depression test

By Richard Kozinski

If you haven't felt well recently, have strange symptomps, you might want to check our depression test developed by the psychiatrist Ivan K. Goldberg who has worked as a psychiatrist in New York for many years.

On Goldberg's depression scale you can see whether you have symptoms of depression or not. You can also use the scale to see if you are making progress in your treatment, whether it is medical treatment or therapy. A five percent change is a sign of either progress or deterioration. When answering the questions, you should think back seven days, and try to evaluate your condition in this time span only. Enter to which extent the individual statements suit your condition.

But please note: The test result is NOT a diagnosis! The scale cannot replace true, professional help. If you suspect that you might suffer from depression, you should immediately contact your doctor, no matter what test result you get. If you want to, you could print out the test and show it to your doctor. This might help him or her to assess your condition.
