These results do not mean that you have depression, but it may be time to start a conversation with a mental health professional. Finding the right treatment plan and working with a healthcare provider or support person can help you feel more like you again.
The depression symptoms you are experiencing may also indicate other mental health issues. We recommend you also take the tests for Anxiety, Borderline Personality Disorder, and PTSD. These other issues are very common with people also suffering from depression.
This screen is not meant to be a diagnosis. Diagnosis and care of mental health conditions can be difficult. Having symptoms of depression is different than having depression. In addition, symptoms of depression can be caused by other mental health conditions, such as Borderline Personality Disorder, or other health problems, like a thyroid disorder. Only a trained professional, such as a doctor or a mental health provider, can make this determination. However, by printing the results and bringing it to a mental health professional, you can open up the conversation.
