Take our self check
This depression screening tool reflects some of the symptoms that are often reported by men. This is not a diagnostic tool and is never enough to make a diagnosis.
Each question asks about a symptom of depression. The questions aren’t only about your mood, because depression also affects:
- How you think (your ability to concentrate or make decisions)
- What you think about (thoughts of failure or pessimism about the future)
- Your body and behaviour (lack of energy or poor sleep)
For some people, depression doesn’t result in sadness, but may show up as anger, irritability, or not feeling much of anything at all. By completing the Self Check you are also helping us understand how the experience of depression might vary for people of different genders.
The research objective associated with the self-check is to identify the types of depressive symptoms that are commonly reported by men.
Should you agree to participate in the self-check research project, your self-check responses will be recorded and grouped together with responses from other participants to be analysed and reported in our future research reports, academic papers and/or at conferences. You will be asked to provide us with your gender and age. We will not ask for information that can personally identify you.
Should you choose to not participate in the self-check research project, you are welcome to complete the self-check, if you wish, but your responses will not be saved or recorded.
By agreeing to participate in the self-check research project, you certify that 1) you are 19 years of age or older and competent to accept this agreement in your own name; 2) you have read and understood this agreement prior to accepting it; and 3) you are aware that by accepting this consent, you are giving permission to Dr. Ogrodniczuk and the research team to connect your gender and age to your self-check responses and use those data in our future research reports, academic papers and/or conference presentations. Your participation is voluntary, which means that you are not being forced to have your self-check responses recorded.
