Identifying Key Drivers of Mental Health Problems in Minnesota
Started June 9, 2023
Abstract or project description
Research Question: What are the key drivers of mental health problems for people in Minnesota as indentified by the Minnesota subreddit? Mental health problems have become a big concern in the community, however, family and friends often find themselves unable to identify the presence of said mental health problems. With tools such as text analysis becoming much stonger in recent years, researchers are gaining opportunities to explore deeper into certain subjects. I believe that we can analyze text from previous posts to identify known indicators of mental health before comparing them to those without said indicators to discover what possible hidden indicators may be present.
