This questionnaire is not designed to provide a definitive psychological diagnosis or to take the place of a professional consultation. Please answer all questions as accurately and honestly as possible.

Note:

The Hamilton Depression Scale was NOT designed to be self-administered because of the the difficulty of interpretation of some of the clinical terms. This online version is simply a tool to facilitate scoring by an experienced psychiatrist or other health care professional with knowledge of psychiatry.

For each item check the description that best characterises the patient during the past week
