Depression Test

Self-Assessments: Depression


The goal of our Depression self-test is not to provide a definitive answer as to whether you or someone you care about has a clinical diagnosis of depression. It is an opportunity to raise your awareness about how low moods and depressive symptoms may be impacting aspects of your life, or the life of someone you care about.

As you read each of the following statements take your time to think about the answer, then click on the button if you believe it applies to you. Only you will be seeing the results of this self-test so take the opportunity to be completely honest with yourself.

South Pacific Private offers free confidential assessments if you wish to discuss the results of your test. Please call us 24/7 on 1800 063 332.

Find out if you have a depression problem

The goal of our self-tests is not to provide you with a diagnosis for yourself or for someone you care about. Instead, they are an opportunity for you to better understand how a behaviour might be impacting upon your life or the life of your family. Use these tests to enhance your awareness of what the problem might be. These tests should be answered honestly in order to provide accurate insight and are a chance for you to reflect upon the current situation.
