A depression test online gives you an indication of how you have been feeling the past two weeks. And by taking the test a few times during a month or two, you may get an indication whether or not you’re starting to feel better.
The results may indicate that it’s a good idea to reach out for help or that you do not require help at the moment. However, taking this depression test online does not give you a proper diagnosis. For a proper diagnosis I recommend you to make an appointment with a general practitioner, psychiatrist or a psychologist. These professionals can give you a proper diagnosis and may be able to specify the type of depression as well.

How does this depression test online work?
This depression test online checks if you are having a major depressive episode at the moment and if you’ve had more of these episodes in your life. If you only have a major depressive episode at this moment then we usually talk about being depressed, but not of a depressive disorder. Only when you’ve had more than one major depressive episodes you have a major depressive disorder.
The test results may indicate that you do or don’t meet the criteria for a major depressive episode (and disorder) and these results may recommend reaching out to a professional.
