There are a couple of online tests to complete. One measures your short-term memory, the other two mood questionnaire are commonly used by clinicians and researchers to screen for mood and anxiety problems. You will not be given feedback on how you performed on your online tests.

If you have a smartphone we have a third memory and thinking test. Over a six day period you'll be asked to complete a selection of daily tasks on our app – each lasting around 8 minutes. For as long as you agree to participate with Great Minds, every six months we'll ask you to complete the online memory tests and mood questionnaires and repeat the smart app test for 14 days in a row.
