Goldberg Depression Scale
The Goldberg Depression Scale, below, is a self-administered questionnaire designed to measure the severity of depressive thinking and behavior.
This tool was designed by Dr. Ivan K. Goldberg, M.D. and is reprinted with his permission.
This tool IS NOT designed to diagnose any psychiatric disorder, nor is it intended to replace evaluation by a qualified psychiatrist. It is only intended to measure the severity of depressive symptoms, and thus to help the reader decide whether to seek a psychiatric evaluation.
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.
To take the questionnaire, please click the radio button next to the selection which best reflects how each statement applies to you. Be sure to choose the statement that applies to how you have felt and behaved during the past week.
