What Type of Depressed Are You?

Depression is often called the common cold of mental illness. This quiz cannot be used to accurately diagnose a mental disorder, however symptoms *are* based on real criteria. See a professional mental health provider for proper diagnosis.

There's a slight trigger warning in that some questions ask about self harm, however there is no further elaboration or details. Proceed at your own risk.
