depression self-assessment

Therapists and Psychatrists for Crisis in Los Angeles

At times, we may feel unsettled in everyday life, harboring thoughts that something might be wrong with ourselves. It’s important to recognize that a normal amount of sadness is something we should allow ourselves. Not every instance of sadness automatically qualifies as a symptom of depression.

If you notice that sadness is increasingly influencing and hindering your life, it may be time to take action. The answer could be depression, which, from a medical standpoint, is viewed as a disorder of the brain. It is rooted in a variety of causes, including genetic, environmental, psychological, biochemical factors, and more.

However, if your responses to the self-assessment for depression indicate a need for assistance, the therapists and psychiatrists at Beverly Mental Health Service can help. Through our holistic dual approach, considering both psychiatric and therapeutic perspectives, we will work with you to identify the underlying causes.

Depression self-assessment: Over the last two weeks, how often have you been bothered by any of the following problems? 
How often do you recognize little interest or pleasure in doing things?
How often do you feel down, sad, or hopeless?
How often do you have trouble falling or staying asleep, or are sleeping too much?
How often do you feel tired or have little energy?
How often do you have poor appetite or overeat?
How often do you feel bad about yourself or that you are a failure or have let yourself or your family down?
How often do you have trouble concentrating?
Are you sometimes moving or speaking so slowly that other people could notice?
Have you had thoughts that you would be better off dead or of hurting yourself in some way?
