Depression Screening

The Patient Health Questionnaire (PHQ) is a self-administered version of the PRIME-MD diagnostic instrument. The PHQ-9 is the depression module of that instrument, which scores each of the 9 DSM-IV criteria as “0” (not at all) to “3” (nearly every day).

Click the link below to begin the PHQ-9. It takes about three minutes to complete. The results are completely confidential and will not be shared with anyone or any organization.
