The Children’s Depression Inventory 2 (CDI2) quantifies depressive symptomatology using reports from children/adolescents; teachers, and parents. When results from the CDI 2 are combined with other sources of verified information, the CDI 2 can aid in the early identification of depressive symptoms, diagnosis of depression and related disorders and monitoring of treatment effectiveness.

  • Emotional Problems
  • Functional Problems


Subscales:

  • Negative Mood
  • Negative Self-Esteem
