Are you worried about your depression?

Twenty-five questions that determine whether or not your sad moods are serious enough to warrant professional intervention, designed by a person with serious depression. Prolonged episodes of sadness are serious, but are all too often overlooked as being "just a mood." Check each question if you feel that it has applied at least twice in the past month.
