The Center for Epidemiological Studies Depression Scale for Children, 10-item version (CES-DC-10Sy) is a 10-item questionnaire designed to screen for symptoms of depression. It was adapted from the original CES-DC to be suitable for Syrian children and was tested in a population of Syrian refugees, aged 8-17 years, living in informal tented settlements in Lebanon.
