Depression Quiz


Understand your depressive mood control capacity


A depressed can include the experience of a lack of self-esteem and motivation, accompanied by a feeling of despair and inability to reach your personal life goals.

You will be asked a series of questions about your feelings and experiences over the past week. Questions focus on motivation and positivity. Your answers are then averaged to give a single raw score for depressed mood, which is then converted to a ranking compared to the normative population of the same age and gender, which is expressed as a percentile.
