Google searches for mental health issues spike in March

Google searches for mental health terms related to depression, major depressive disorder, bipolar disorder and anxiety disorder peak in the late winter and dip during the summer, according to a recent study by Google News Lab and Gabriel Gianordoli. This is in line with a Google study in 2013, which also found that mental illness searches followed seasonal trends.
