Preliminary Information

In each task, we ask you to report your attitudes toward or beliefs about various mental health topics, and to provide some general information about yourself, including basic demographic information (e.g., your age) and your experience with different mental health issues (e.g., sadness or anxiety).  These demonstrations may be more valuable if you report your conscious beliefs for comparison. Also, we compare responses across different groups, such as between men and women or persons with versus without different clinical symptoms.  So, providing this information is useful for us.

Data exchanged with this site are protected by SSL encryption, and no personally identifying information is collected. IP addresses are routinely recorded, but are completely confidential.

Important disclaimer: In reporting your results of any test that you take, we will mention possible interpretations that have a basis in research done with these tests (at the University of Washington, University of Virginia, and Harvard University). However, these Universities, as well as the individual researchers who have contributed to this site, make no claim for the validity of these suggested interpretations. If you are unprepared to encounter interpretations that you might find objectionable, please do not proceed further. You may prefer to examine background information before deciding whether or not to proceed.

I am aware of the possibility of encountering interpretations of my IAT test performance with which I may not agree. Knowing this, I wish to proceed.
