Depression Calculator app attempts to empower patients with mental health scores

Dr. Christopher Exeter reviewed the Depression Calculator app, which is “a simple question and answer tool, enabling an individual to assess whether or not they maybe suffering with depression.”

His conclusion:

What we like: It is easy and simple to use; clearly written; well laid out.

What we don’t like: the test is good, but the follow-up information is lengthy. Whilst information is welcome, it could be better segmented for guidance.

Click to Connect: one click and your are starting the test

Equipment needed: None

Facilitate Patient/Clinician Relationship: It should enable an individual to have an informed discussion around a set of clear symptoms.
