The Depression Test is a powerful tool to evaluate depression and monitor treatment response.The test questions are based on Patient Healthcare Questionnaire-9 (PHQ-9), the most widely used and trusted questionnaire among mental health professionals. The test can be self-administered.

With Depression Test, you can:

- take the PHQ-9 test to screen for depression
- check the severity of your depression
- store the test results and monitor improvements over time
- keep a journal to track your mood
- feel better by using self-guided Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) to identify and reframe your negative thoughts
- gain access to high quality depression resources

The CBT exercises include A-B-C, Socratic Questions, Challenge Core Beliefs, and De-catastrophizing. The exercises will help you identify and challenge your cognitive distortions that lead to negative thoughts.

Depression can be effectively treated. Don't wait until things get worse. Find out if you're depressed and then take action.

Developers please respond 🙏🏻 ,


You NEED to get this app. I got help from my school counselor after this and I felt so much better. It said I had severe depression and it was completely right. Please if you struggle with even mild depression or suicidal thoughts do not hesitate to get help wether it’s your counselor, a therapist, a teacher, a friend, a parent, or any other trusted adult. Do not keep that type of stuff to yourself, it will only make it worse. I am just trying to help you❤️🧡💛💚💙💜🖤🤍🤎💔❤️‍🔥❤️‍🩹❣️💕💞💓💗💖💘💝💟! Do NOT hesitate. Suicide is a serious problem in the world people die from it every day. Again I say do not hesitate to get help.

Similar to what hospitals do, but...

So I’m under the age of 18, I’m actually diagnosed with depression and anxiety. I have to take medications and see a therapist and psychiatrist. They tend to give you a form to fill out with similar questions to these so they can keep data of your feeling and emotions. The only difference is, this test is much shorter therefore may be less accurate. Is it a nice way to reflect and track the days you’ve felt depressed? Yes! Will it tell you if you actually have depression and you should probably seek greater help? No! If you scored 20-27 i recommend getting immediate help!!

Thanks for the feedback! Your assessment is correct.

Basic, but Good

It's a basic app, but that's a good thing! It's very straightforward. It provides a handy way for tracking depression symptoms over time with its history feature.

If I had to ask for anything, I wish that the history feature could chart things based on time, rather than just using a constant interval for each measurement. I know that it would require storing more data, but I think it might be worth it.

Developer Response ,

Thanks so much for the feedback! We will definitely look into enhancing the history feature based on your suggestion.
