This depression tool is a culturally acceptable screening tool for depression among older Indigenous Australians living in remote areas, and has been modified from the commonly used depression risk assessment tool Patient Health Questionnaire (PHQ-9).
The tool has been adapted by re-wording and translating some of the questions to align with Indigenous cultural norms, and then validated amongst remote living Indigenous communities.
