The QIDS-SR is not designed to diagnose depression, but rather to assess the severity of symptoms of a person who has been diagnosed as having depression by a clinician.  In general the scores are most helpful in tracking changes in the severity of symptoms, for example, as a result of treatment.  However, the scores can give a broad estimate of the overall severity of a depressive illness.
