Depression Awareness Quiz

When you’re going through a tough time it’s normal to feel down for a while, emotions like sadness and grief help make us human. But if you’re feeling sad or miserable most of the time over a long period of time, you might have depression.
 
Depression is a mental illness that has a significant effect on a person’s ability to function normally and is marked by persistent feelings of sadness, emptiness, worthlessness, and hopelessness.
 
Take this brief, eight-question quiz to help figure out whether you’re showing any of the warning signs of depression. This won’t give you a diagnosis but it will help you decide the next step. Be honest to get the most accurate result.
 
If you are experiencing thoughts of hurting yourself or others, call 911 immediately or go to your nearest emergency room or psychiatric hospital for a crisis evaluation. This quiz is not designed to make a diagnosis of depression or take the place of a professional diagnosis. Please note that we do not directly receive your responses. We are unable to accept any responsibility for contacting you and for your emotional and mental status following your completion of this questionnaire. However, you may contact us at (504) 452-5937 or info@maisonvieneworleans.com.
