Is An Online Depression Test Conclusive?

Any online depression test is not conclusive. It is simply a tool to help identify if you may be experiencing the common signs of depression, at the time of completing the depression questionnaire.  Any online depression symptoms test is not meant to replace a full assessment by a qualified clinician. Always seek advice, diagnosis or treatment for depression from a qualified doctor and/or other health professional.

Is The Depression Test Used On This Website Accurate?

The depression test used on this website is the Patient Health Questionnaire (PHQ-9).  This is a widely used questionnaire first developed by Pfizer (for more information, click hereOpens in a new tab.).  This depression test is generally self-administered and utilises a scoring method to specifically measure depression-related symptoms.
The PHQ-9 has been validated for use in primary careOpens in a new tab.. [1Opens in a new tab.]

(The copyright for the PHQ-9 was formerly held with Pfizer, who provided the educational grant for Dr’s Spitzer, Williams and Kroenke who originally designed it. This is no longer the case and no permission is required to reproduce, translate, display or distribute the PHQ-9).

I Scored High On This Depression Test – Do I Have Severe Depression?

No, not necessarily.  Many common depression symptoms or ‘signs of depression’ can easily overlap with other conditions, such as:  A Thyroid Imbalance.   Therefore, it is highly recommended that if you are feeling less-than 100% visit your local GP, qualified doctor or other health professional immediately and have a thorough check-up.

I Scored Low On This Depression Test – Can I Stop My Antidepressants?

No.  You shouldn’t stop taking medication without talking with your doctor—even if you feel better.  Stopping can result in withdrawal symptoms like anxiety and irritability.  Or, depression could return.

 “Dropping “cold turkey” off any medication, most especially mind altering medications, can often be MORE DANGEROUS than staying on the drugs. With antidepressants the FDA has now warned that any abrupt change in dose, whether increasing or decreasing the dose, can produce suicide, hostility, or psychosis.”
