    Don't be worried, it's pretty straight forward. They'll ask you about how you feel, are you sleeping, are you eating, what do you do during the day, any plans for suicide, any self harm etc etc. Takes ages and they ask loads of stuff but in the end it's still pretty simple to answer, and if you don't understand/don't want to answer something then just tell them.

    Good luck.
    Thanks for that. Who is it that actually does the assessment? Is it more than one person?

    Well I've gone from getting too much sleep to just scrapping 6 so... Meh. I'm fairly awake.

    Far too much work, far too much drama, far too much 'me' going on, but I guess I'll just survive.

    Wish I knew why I feel so bad.
    Is there even a reason you think? Depression doesn't always necessarily seem to have a reason.

    When I've had assessments there's always been more than one person. I think they go round in pairs at least for safety (:mmm: ). But it was usually one person asking the questions and the other one sitting there occasionally asking for clarification about stuff.

    I'm posting here because in H&R, I'm bound to get trolls taking the piss.

    I think I may be suffering from depression. But how can I know for certain? What are the symptoms?

    I could go to my uni counselling service but normally if you make an appointment, it looks like you don't have it, if you get what I mean. You need to be recommended by a friend or family member, but I have no friends.

    Go to your GP, doctors are the only people qualified to diagnose someone with depression and if you do, can then get you the proper treatment.

    because wouldn't someone who's depressed not even feel like picking up the phone, booking an appointment, let alone going to the appointment?

    LOL, I've always made my own appointments.

    It's taken me hours - literally, hours - of staring at the phone in the past, I've missed more than I've attended, but I always made them myself.

    Booking appointments yourself makes it look like you are faking? No, idiot. It makes it look like you are seeking help. Not every person suffering with depression wishes to commit suicide - many wish to get better, and find happiness. If you don't book an appointment to seek professional help, it is very unlikely that you will find happiness. You will only find misery.
