First, you need to find out are you really depressed? Here are some simple tests to help you decide the same:
1. (A) Do you get help from talking about your problems? Or (b) Have you become uncommunicative and say very little about anything?
2. (A) Do you get help when friends visit? Or (b) You like your friends to stay away?
3. (A) Do you attribute your depression to ill-will, enmity or inability of others with whom you are currently involved in work or personal life? Or (b) Do you blame yourself almost entirely and think bad about yourself?

If you answered 'yes' to the second part (the' b) from these 3 questions then you may be suffering from very serious depression and should go see a doctor providing ‘stress therapy in Ringsted Mid-Zealand’ (also called ‘stressterapi i ringsted midtsjlland’ in the Danish language).
If you say 'yes' to the first part of the third question, or feel that the section does not apply to you then you may have what used to be called 'neurotic depression' and have a high chance aided by the appropriate method in this program now.
Simpler test can provide clues as to whether or not you need help to deal with depression:
Have you ever felt sad or depressed almost every day for at least 2 weeks?
Have you lost interest in things that once interested you and even have lost interest in almost everything?
If you answered "yes" to both questions then despite self-help program may have a high chance of helping you, it is still very likely you suffer from depression and should consider seeing a mental health professional for further evaluation.
