Depression Checklist for Parents

Adapted from Susan Dubuque's book,
A Parent's Guide to Childhood Depression (Center for Applied Psychology, 1996).

The following checklist will help you assess and document your child's feelings and behavior. Be as object and thorough as possible. After each item that applies to your child, add a description including how long and how often it happens, and give examples. Share this information with your physician or therapist to provide a fairly good picture of your child's emotional state.
