You're probably familiar with the Pain Scale. When you're experiencing pain, doctors ask you, on a scale of 1-10, how bad your pain is. I have anxiety and I was looking for a similar scale. I didn't find one that perfectly fit what I needed, so I created one myself. You can find it in my shop as well!

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.

So I made this depression scale that represents my experience AND it comes with a blank scale so that you can put down YOUR experience.

The purpose of this scale is to help you talk to your therapist, talk to your friends and family, and also manage your mental health. If you find yourself going up on the scale, it gives you the opportunity to find out why. Do your meds need adjusting? Is there something in your life that's causing a lot of mental hardship? Are you just not making the time to meet your needs? It's a great tool to help you take care of you.

Here's What's Inside!
- 10-page PDF (with a black and white version for easy printing!)
- My original 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 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.
