Google Partners With NAMI To Create An Anxiety-Disorder Self-Assessment
Today, in partnership with NAMI, Google has launched an anxiety self-assessment tool. When people in the U.S. look up information about anxiety on Google, they will now have access to a clinically-validated questionnaire called the GAD-7 (General Anxiety Disorder-7) that helps evaluate a person’s level of anxiety. After taking the questionnaire, Google will point users to NAMI’s resources.
Anxiety disorders can present in a wide range of physical and emotional symptoms. They can be the result of a combination of biological factors triggered by not only genetics but a change in environment or exposure to a stressful event.
