Google Depression Test

A GOOGLE SCREENING THAT LETS YOU KNOW IF YOU'RE DEPRESSED

Google recently teamed up with the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), a nationwide grassroots mental health advocacy group, to offer a mental health screening questionnaire to U.S. residents who search for "depression" on their mobile phones. The top result is a box called a "knowledge panel," which has information on depression, its symptoms, and potential treatments.

To get screened, click the option "Check if you're clinically depressed" to take a confidential, medically backed self-assessment quiz. The tech firm said it recognized that the information was “sensitive and private,” and that it would not store the responses.

 

This test provides you with immediate results, resources to know more about you level of depression and a hot line for immediate help and emotional support. Also, it provides you with methods to find relief like talking to a psychiatrist or self-care treatments.
