Mental health resource help from Google

Techstination feature for Thursday, June 11, 2020

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.       With the stress and anxiety that so many people have been feeling of late….Google is providing people with tools and services to help them get reliable information about mental health.   Dr. David Feinberg…who has had a long healthcare career…is head of Google Health..

“When you think about it, the storm that we’re living through has so many stressers.   There’s the worry about infection…there’s job loss…food insecurity…financial insecurity.  The social distancing can lead to social isolation.”

Doing a Google search for anxiety will provide links that can steer you to helpful resources.   Google is also employing artificial intelligence in the search for solutions to Covid-19 and other illnesses.   In the past they have trained computers to more effectively read mammographies.
