Should You
Take the Beck Depression Inventory?

Many of my visitors want to take the Beck Depression Inventory to find out if they are depressed. This is one of the classic tests, indeed. However, this particular test and can't be distributed or made available online. If you find it online it is in violation of copyright laws and the owner of the site should be reported!  

There is good news, however. If you are feeling depressed there are many other depression tests out there on the web. 

Taking one online is easy, convenient and has its own level of privacy. However, it's important to know a few things before you take one.

First and foremost, not all tests are legit. A lot of research has gone into developing these tests so that a proper diagnosis can be made. Many of the tests out there online are developed by people without clinical experience or qualifications to do so.

Second, know that any online test is not meant to be a replacement for a professional diagnosis. In fact, legitimate assessments require the support and interpretation of a professional so that a proper diagnosis can be made. 

With that said ... you're in luck! As a National Certified Counselor, I can provide you with a good test that I personally developed based on the DSM-5 and will give you a good idea if you might be depressed. So, If you want to take a depression test then I have several to choose from on this site.

You can look at my other pages or simpy click on the image below and get started! 

You can take a really formal test such as the Jung Self Rating Depression Scale, the Depression Anxiety and Stress Scale, and the Geriatric Depression Scale as well. 

I also have a few more "laid back" assessments you can take including the Depression Self Test, a Depression Quiz, and a Depression Questionnaire.

All of these assessments are made available to you for your education and meant to be a reference point, giving you additional information for your pursuit in learning if you are depressed or may be suffering with a depressive disorder. This is not meant to be a way to diagnose yourself.

If, after taking any of these assessments, you feel you really may be clinically depressed, then consider reaching out to a depression hotline, or find a mental health professional in your area. Once you find someone in the field you will be able to take the Beck Depression Inventory, which can be properly interpreted by him/her. Once diagnosed, an effective treatment plan will be admnistered just for you so you can get on the road to recovery quickly!

Finally, if you want to learn more about the Beck Depression Inventory you can check it out on Wikipedia
