Depression Assessment Questionnaire


Depression is described as low and sad mood for a significant period of time accompanied with the following symptoms:

One thing worth noting here is that simply having a low sad mood is not enough to qualify as depression syndrome unless it is accompanied by the symptoms listed above.

Types of Depression:

Depression can be subdivided into two categories based on severity.

  1. Major Depression

  2. Dysthymia or Chronic Depression

1. Major Depression

Major depression is the most severe kind of depression with a constant sense of hopelessness and despair, also known as clinical depression. With major depression, it may be difficult to work, study, sleep, eat, and enjoy friends and activities. Some people have clinical depression only once in their life, while others have it several times in a lifetime.

2. Dysthymia (Chronic Depression)

Dysthymia, sometimes referred to as mild, chronic depression, is less severe than major depression. With dysthymia, the depression symptoms can linger for a long period of time, often two years or longer. Those who suffer from dysthymia can also experience periods of major depression.
