Helpful mental health self-assessments in search results

Since people often turn to Google Search to research potential medical conditions, we launched several clinically-validated self-assessment tools in a number of countries that appear when a user searches for information related to mental health conditions. These self-assessments for conditions such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and depression are commonly used by healthcare professionals.

Additional information and resources

The self-assessment tools that appear on Google Search in certain countries provide information to evaluate the level of symptoms, along with links to additional resources. At the end of the self-assessment, individuals are always directed to seek additional guidance from their healthcare providers.

Your answers are private and secure

Google does not collect or share answers or results from your self-assessment. We only collect usage data such as clicks on links at the end of a self-assessment; and we only use that data in ways that do not identify you and that follow our Privacy Policy
