About depression

When we are anxious or depressed it can change the way we think, feel and act. Dealing with the tough times can be hard but you’re not alone. Take a small step by getting ideas or support on how to take care of yourself and others.

Can I take a self-test to see how I'm tracking?

Having a low mood or feeling on edge are common experiences for us all. When these moods persist, it may be that you are experiencing depression or anxiety – or both.

You can take a test to see how you are feeling.(external link) These self tests ask some important questions that can help you take stock of where you are at so you can make a plan for feeling better sooner.
