Depression Test

"I just want to die. I am suicidal. I am dealing with suicidal thoughts."

Looking for a depression test?
Maybe you're not sure. The Depression Test - Self Tests by Psychology Today is really long.

You can check out this list.

From webmd & hpb*
Symptoms of depression may include the following:

  • Difficulty concentrating, remembering details, and making decisions
  • Fatigue and decreased energy
  • Feelings of guilt, worthlessness, and/or helplessness
  • Feelings of hopelessness and/or pessimism
  • Insomnia, early-morning wakefulness, or excessive sleeping
  • Irritability, restlessness
  • Loss of interest in activities or hobbies once pleasurable, including sex
  • Overeating or appetite loss
  • Persistent aches or pains, headaches, cramps, or digestive problems that do not ease even with treatment
  • Persistent sad, anxious, or "empty" feelings
  • Thoughts of suicide, suicide attempts
Don't worry if you're unsure. If you're a student, speak to a teacher/trusted adult/parent/school counsellor. You can even see a psychologist or a psychiatrist just to be sure. 

You'll see a doctor if you are coughing/having a fever/runny nose right?
Getting professional help for (suspected) depression is nothing to be ashamed of.
