Welcome to the PredictD-Spain website.
Welcome to the predictD-Spain website. The questionnaire on this website has been developed as a tool for predicting the risk of depression in the future, more especially during the next year. Risk estimates of this type have been developed in medicine to predict the risk of major medical disorders, such as heart attacks and strokes.
If you complete the questions that follow we will be able to estimate your risk of developing major depression in the coming 12 months. The questions are based on a large study that was carried out in 5,442 persons in 7 Spanish provinces (from 5 different autonomous regions). Additionally, the results from Spain were validated in Latin America and five other European countries. Details of the study can be found in:Bellón JA, Luna JD, King M, Moreno-Küstner B, Nazareth I, Montón-Franco C, GildeGómez-Barragán MJ, Sánchez-Celaya M, Díaz-Barreiros MÁ, Vicens C, Cervilla JA, Svab I, Maaroos HI, Xavier M, Geerlings MI, Saldivia S, Gutiérrez B, Motrico E, Martínez-Cañavate MT, Oliván-Blázquez B, Sánchez-Artiaga MS, March S, del Mar Muñoz-García M, Vázquez-Medrano A, Moreno-Peral P, Torres-González F. Predicting the onset of major depression in primary care: international validation of a risk prediction algorithm from Spain. Psychol Med 2011, 41(10):2075-88.
The questions are designed for people who are NOT depressed at present. The PredictD-Spain is really a “risk calculator”. If you would like to take part you will first be asked to answer the questions in this questionnaire. Depending on your responses, you will then be told your risk of major depression in the coming year. Please don’t forget to accept the terms of use of this questionnaire on the next page.
