I am not a medical professional by any means. Depression is a confusing and multi layered illness, and I do not want to make generalizations about it. If you do not know the answer to a question answer it to the best of your ability. Remember, not everyone with depression will show all or even any signs or symptoms in this quiz.

I think my friend is depressed, well actually, she is, she tried overdosing and killing her self and as been really down lately, her best friend (let’s call her Zoe) is always trying to talk to her and make her feel better, and so do I, and one day I actually got her to laugh, then later that day, I heard her say to Zoe, “you don’t make me laugh, he does!” And she was talking about me, i dont know what to do. Please help me, im also depressed so I know what she’s going through but at the same time Im worried about their friendship, they’re slowly growing apart and she’s starting to grow closer to me.
