Depressive Disorders: Psychological Tests
There are several well-evaluated psychological tests for the diagnosis and assessment of a depressive disorder. The most important test instruments include the CES-D-Scale (Center for Epidemologic Studies Depression Scale) by the National Institute of Mental Health, the Beck Depression Inventory (BDI-II) and the Hamilton Rating Scale for Depression (HAM-D).
