Agitated depression is not officially recognized as a mental health condition or a part of depression but the term agitated depression describes specific depression symptoms which can occur with any individual suffering from a major depressive disorder.
In the DSM-5 major depression disorder and persistent depressive disorder are recognized as types of depression but agitated depression does not have any criteria for diagnosis. Individuals with major depressive disorder do show signs of agitation and irritability so this screening test tries to determine whether you are showing signs of major depression or not.
