Goldberg Depression Scale
The Goldberg Depression Scale is a list of questions to ask yourself. It measures the severity of your depressive thinking and actions.
This questionnaire is a tool to help you decide if you need to seek help with your mood. It does not diagnose major depression, bipolar depression or any other mood disorder.
The results are only to be used as a guage. It does not replace meeting with a doctor or mental health professional.
If after completeing the questionnaire you feel you need help, visit your GP who might conduct an assessment of you, or refer you to someone else, such as a psychiatrist or a psychologist.
The test is made up of eighteen questions. After completing all the questions you will be presented with your result, and your rank on the Goldberg Depression Scale.
