    beyondblue have some simple checklists that are quick, easy and confidential. These questions are designed to help you reflect on your situation or that of someone close to you. They will not provide a diagnosis - you will need to see a health professional for that. However, they will tell you if you have symptoms that are common in people with depression. If you or someone you know has depression, please consult a doctor. These tests can be found on beyondblue's website via these links:
