Google has integrated a medially-certified quiz into its search results to help users determine whether they have depression.
Users in the United States who search Google for depression or clinical depression will now be greeted with a link labelled “Check if you are clinically depressed”.
The link opens an integrated PHQ-9 questionnaire, which helps to identify levels of depressive symptoms.
It is important to note that the PHQ-9 quiz is not meant to act as a standalone diagnostic tool, but it can help users to identify symptoms.
Google said users should consult a medical professional for an in-depth diagnosis to determine if they have clinical depression.
