If you are concerned that you or a loved one are suffering from depression, our self assessment questionnaire can help to evaluate your mental health status and help you determine next steps.

Self-Assessment for Depression

The patient health questionnaire (PHQ) is a self-administered version of a diagnostic test that has been validated in major studies involving thousands of patients in multiple primary care clinics. At 9 items, the PHQ depression scale (PHQ-9) produces comparable results to much longer tests and consists of the nine criteria on which the diagnosis of depressive disorders is based.

If your score reveals that you are suffering from this debilitating condition, please call us today at (847) 562-5868. Remember, there is new hope!
