Screening Tool: Depression (in Adults) (2-item Depression Screening Questionnaire)
This survey is designed to provide a quick assessment of whether you might have signs and symptoms related to depression. However, no test is 100% accurate. No matter what your score is, you should seek help if you have any concerns about yourself or your loved ones.
The Depression Screening Questionnaire used here is a two-question screening tool recommended by the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF).
