Online resources can be very helpful in learning more about depression, mental illness, and suicide.

However, online sources--including online depression screening questionnaires--are not a substitute for an evaluation by a counselor or therapist.

If you or a friend need help, it is always best to meet with a mental health professional.

If you or a friend is in crisis, get help immediately.
