Depression Scale

This is the depression part of the Hospital Anxiety and Depression (HAD) test. It has been widely used by GPs and hospitals since 1983. Do remember though that it is only a questionnaire, and hence just part of a professional assessment.

For each statement, select the answer which best represents your situation.
