Predicting mental health treatment decisions from social media

Eunbin Kim, Alejandra Dashe, Emelie Curl, Mitch Hamidi, Gabriel Khan


Question: Can we predict the treatment plan (e.g., drug, individual/group therapy, combination, alternative) for mental health diagnoses?
Data source: The plan is to scrape data from public social media forums like Reddit
Method: 1st can we classify by diagnoses or symptoms based on the text data, and can we identify predictors that would lead to specific treatment plans/outcomes (e.g., demographic information). The project will most likely aim to use NLP but other methods are also possible based on suggestion.
Goal: Create a project using transferable skills for industry: working with large data, NLP, classification, scraping from social media, making predictions of behavior
