It is important to first understand depression.
Use the Patient Health Questionnaire-9 (PHQ-9) (PDF, 279KB, About PDF) to perform a self-assessment to help you begin to explore whether the feelings, thoughts, or behaviors you may be experiencing could be depression. The PHQ-9 is not intended to take the place of an evaluation by a trained medical professional.
A mental health professional or your physician can advise you about whether you can benefit from treatment and describe different treatment alternatives.
