Depression is a potentially serious mental health condition that can creep up on us without warning. Many of us get caught up in the daily grind, not taking the time to assess our emotional wellbeing. As the years go by, we may not even realise that our mood has gradually shifted, and we are no longer finding pleasure in the things we once loved.

It’s easy to brush off feelings of sadness, hopelessness, or emptiness as just a part of life. However, if these feelings persist, it could be a sign of depression. 

To get a quick snapshot of your mental health, we encourage you to take the depression self-assessment quiz below. While not a substitute for a professional diagnosis, this quiz can provide some insights into your emotional state and help you determine if it’s time to seek support.

Remember, your mental health is just as important as your physical health. Don’t let depression steal your vitality.

Each question corresponds to a specific aspect of mental health or well-being.
