Psych Test Homepage

People with major depression commonly suffer from cognitive dysfunction, affecting their daily quality of life. This is in addition to the psychological and physical symptoms of depression. Cognitive deficits (symptoms) of depression include problems with concentration, memory, problem solving and slow thinking. The British Columbia Cognitive Complaints Inventory (BC-CCI) helps quantify your level of perceived cognitive impairment stemming from depression.

Instructions. This test measures the severity of cognitive symptoms of depression. It can be used to assist in a diagnosis of depression as well as to help measure the effectiveness of depression treatment. Monitoring of cognition during treatment is increasingly recognized as important because cognitive deficits may persist even when patients are in symptom remission following depression treatment. Please rate your problems with concentration, memory and thinking skills during the past 7 days.

This test is not designed to make a diagnosis of depression or take the place of a professional diagnosis. If you suspect that you are depressed, please consult with a mental health professional as soon as possible.
