Depression tests

Part 1, Part 2, Part 3

I hope my Depression Checklist in Part 2 of this article has helped you to identify your feelings, and to work out if you are - or your partner is - suffering from depression or not.

Below is a list of more depression tests which I hope might help you further. Just before you get to those, I'd love to tell you about a way you can start to feel better straight away...

Immediate help to start your recovery today

Self-hypnosis is an effortless way of tackling the signs and symptoms of depression, as well as any underlying problems. It is safe, effective and ever so user-friendly.

The great thing about hypnosis is that when you're depressed, there isn't much you have to actively do. You lay on your bed or in a comfortable chair and let the download do the work for you.

It's really easy for you to get your own online counsellor...

... BetterHelp will find the right counsellor for you.

This is how it works:

  • You can contact your counsellor for FREE for a week as often as you want and get quality professional attention and support.
  • To start your free week-long subscription - safely and securely enter your credit card details. Don't need help beyond your first week? Just cancel your subscription - that's absolutely fine!
  • If you can afford it - give yourself a chance to deal with stuff once and for all and carry on beyond the week. You won't believe what a breath of fresh air it is to have someone on and by your side.
  • Fill in the online questionnaire to help match you with the right counsellor (yes, I know - you may find it little tedious, but it's really important!)
