Are You Suffering from Depression?

Or, maybe you are wondering whether 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.

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 you are concerned that you or a loved one are suffering from depression, take a moment to answer the health questionnaire. And, 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!
