Is It a Passing Funk or Depression?

Everyone experiences ups and downs in life -- no one is happy all the time. But according to statistics from a study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association for one in five women and one in 10 men, those downs are more than just a “bad day” -- they’re actually a sign of a medical condition known as depression. Two out of three people who struggle with depression don’t even realize it. Could you be one? Take this simple quiz to find out. When answering each question, think about how you’ve felt over the past two weeks and then choose the appropriate answer.
