Abstract: Depression literacy questionnaire is a form of indicator that represents the understanding of depression of test-takers. It is globally accepted and translated into many languages. Therefore, this research has been conducted to test the effectiveness of the questionnaire and to provide appropriate knowledge for senior high school students in Chiang Mai, Thailand, who are now living in a stressful atmosphere. After committing every step including pretests, reading the website, and posttests, the result of the observation is satisfactory because students tend to do better in the posttests (Mean = 15.44 out of 21) with less fluctuation (S. D. = 9.16) than the pretests (Mean = 11.56, S. D. = 12.43). The statistical analysis of this research can also be noticed by p < 0.05 and t = 7.63, meaning that the process of educating students about depression is successful.
