The Depression Test is an application designed to help users evaluate and track depressive symptoms over time. The home screen has three tabs: Test, Results, Info. The Test tab prompts you to launch the PHQ-9, a validated tool to detect the presence of depressive symptoms over the past two weeks. Once the questionnaire has been administered, it will score responses and explain the user’s score, which can be saved for monitoring purposes. Under results, the user can view all previously saved scores on a graph, depicting patterns and change over time. The Info tab provides the user with educational information about depression symptoms, causes, treatments and self-help guide. Other features include setting a weekly reminder to complete the survey.
