Self-assessments for mental health

We’ve launched clinically-validated self-assessments for mental health on Google Search that appear when someone searches for information related to mental health conditions like PTSD. Depending on a user’s responses, the tools help individuals understand whether they have symptoms related to certain mental health conditions, as well as links to appropriate resources and support options for mental healthcare.

Accurate and useful health information

We’re increasing the quantity, quality, and diversity of health-related content and access to care options across Google products like Search, Maps, and YouTube to help people make educated decisions around their health. Our team is passionate about using technology to help people find the care they need, when they need it.
