Google put an anxiety self-assessment in search



The knowledge panel will also display information about anxiety-related symptoms and treatments. Google partnered with The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), one of the largest mental health organizations in the US, to source the information. The organization is quick to point out Google won’t collect or share any of the questionnaires people complete.

This is the third time the two have partnered together to provide Search users with access to support and information. You’ll also find questionnaires designed to help those who feel like they’re suffering from depression or PTSD. The survey comes at around the same time as various other tech companies, including Snapchat and Facebook, have deployed new mental health-related features to help their users through the coronavirus pandemic. Google says it hopes to make this latest resource available in other countries over time.
