Depression? Do you feel depressed?
Depression is often an invisible enemy which slowly enters your life. Oftentimes we do not realize that we are sliding into a depression or that we are becoming depressed. We start to enjoy life less or get negative thoughts or, even worse, we do not feel anything anymore, we simply feel empty. These are all symptoms which can point at depression, or sometimes at burnout.
How do I know if I have a depression?
People generally do not have any experience with this. Your doctor can help you to set a medical diagnosis. You can also check the internet to see if you recognize certain symptoms of depression in your own situation. A simple way to get some sort of insight is through taking our online depression test. This simple self-test will give you 3 results. You will get a graph with your depression score, and also receive your anxiety score and stress score. We developed a short online test for you which contains a depression test as well as an anxiety test and a stress test.
Depression test measures how depressed you are
Our depression test measures your level of negative thoughts and feelings, so that you can check if you are at risk or not.
Anxiety test measures how anxious you are
The anxiety test, which is found in the same self-test, measures how anxious you are. Oftentimes, depression and anxiety disorders go together. Certain studies show even that 75% of people with anxiety also have some type of depression, and the other way around, people with a depression also have around 75% chance of having associated anxieties.
Stress test measures how much stress you have
Stress is still an underlying cause of depression as well as of anxiety. That is why we also added a stress test or tension test to our depression test. In the self-help program 15 Minutes 4 me we also measure your levels of stress, anxiety, and depression every week to evaluate your evolution. We also send you a copy of this test per e-mail so that you can print it and take it to your general practitioner or doctor.
