Depression Can be Screened by Waiting Room Depression Test

We all know that so many silent victims suffer from depression and anxiety yet fail to reveal their psychiatric diseases to anyone. The stigma that mental illness carries is most probably the last taboo that will be broken as we enter the century of the mind

Till the day when radical honesty and straightforwardness will be commonplace around the world, one method of diagnosing someone with depression or anxiety is a questionnaire. 

Patients sitting around wiling away the time in a doctor’s waiting room could utilize their duration in a better way by filling in answers to questions about their mental state. 

So many patients who suffer from chronic pain and rheumatism are depressed and anxious with respect to the two illnesses. Meanwhile, those who have congenital heart disease have a lesser chance of being anxious or depressed. 

The vital information that gets relayed to the physician via the questionnaire will lend greater depth and analytic strength to the diagnosis of the illness. The real issues bugging the ailment sufferers are revealed for the diagnostician through this methodology. And it is so simple and easily accomplished that one can only think about why no one came up with this strategy before. 

The utility of the info that is gathered from the patient’s mental constitution will go on to corroborate his or her overall medical synopsis. The psychosomatic symptoms that manifest themselves due to a strange amalgam of physical and mental factors are amazing to behold.

Maybe it belies the fact that 99% of the physical ailments have psychological roots. The screening tests for depression and anxiety are still in their infancy though. It will take an in-depth analysis of the habits, idiosyncrasies, temperaments and personality types of the individuals who come for medical treatment to get a handle on their maladies.
