Understanding Mental Health through Social Media

We recognize that social media can be a lens into the lives and wellbeing of individuals. As such multiple works in the social computing and health informatics space have looked to analyze social media for possible indicators of mental health. For a social media platform of interest to the student, we can study how useful social media posts, interactions, and other social media information can be in predicting and understanding mental health and mental illness. By surveying users to discuss mental health and collecting social media data, we can use statistical and machine learning tools to search for relationships between social media and mental health. It would be especially interesting to study this for a specific demographic, a niche social media platform or online community, or for a particular mental health condition.
