This is a version of my depression scale that's better suited for teens. It includes language that's easier for teens to understand and also references how depression can affect school life and home life!

I also have depression, and just like any mental illness - it doesn't present the same way all of the time and different people experience depression differently. Some people have suicidal ideation and some people don't. Some people feel an overwhelming sadness and other people feel completely numb. Depression can stop you from getting out of bed but for others, it doesn't.

The purpose of this scale is to help teens talk to their therapist, the adults in their lives, and teach them how to recognize the symptoms of depression. 

This is a communication tool, NOT a diagnostic or treatment tool, and shouldn’t be used as one. Any level of depression requires professional intervention especially when it comes to teens. Please go through it with your teen’s mental health professional first, just to double-check that it will be a good fit as a communication tool!

Here's What's Inside!
- 12-page PDF (with a black and white version for easy printing!)
- Default Depression Scale
- A blank scale for you to fill out with your own symptoms
- The 'Feeling Better' Worksheet allows you to list what acts of self-care help you cope with that level of depression
- A worksheet for each level 1-5, to describe physical symptoms, coping skills, and how each level affects your life and relationships
- A list of discussion questions to talk through and open up lines of communication
- A list of suicide hotlines and textlines, should you need them! It's great to have someone to talk to.

This is a digital file that you can print from your home computer or have professionally printed. Nothing will be sent to your home. You can fill this in digitally (using Adobe Reader, Xodo, or Goodnotes) or you can print it out from your home computer - whichever works best for you!

Can I Get A Physical Copy?

Unfortunately, I don’t have the resources to print and ship all of my workbooks. If you want a physical copy you are welcome to purchase the digital file and then have it printed at Staples, The UPS Store, FedEx, or any other printing company as long as it’s just for your own personal use!

All of my products also have Digital Fill-In Enabled, meaning that you can fill them in straight from your phone/tablet/or computer.

Apps like Adobe Reader, XoDo, or GoodNotes allow you to “write” inside the PDF, so you can carry it around with you whenever you need it!

I Am Not A Mental Health Professional

While I LOVE talking about mental health - I am NOT a professional. All of my worksheets come from lived experience which makes them unique but it's also important to note that they aren't a replacement for therapy. I'm not a therapist and I always recommend you work through my workbooks with one!


My workbooks are in standard US Letter Size (unless otherwise specified) and should be printed on standard US Letter Size Paper.

When printed, the colors might be darker or vary from what you see on your computer screen.
