Monitoring Tweets for Depression to Detect At-risk Users

Zunaira Jamil, Diana Inkpen, Prasadith Buddhitha, Kenton White
2017 Proceedings of the Fourth Workshop on Computational Linguistics and Clinical Psychology –- From Linguistic Signal to Clinical Reality  
We propose an automated system that can identify at-risk users from their public social media activity, more specifically, from Twitter.  ...  Therefore, we only use this classifier to compute the estimated percentage of depressed tweets and to add this value as a feature for the userlevel classifier.  ...  We thank the annotators (Bryan Paget and Sameen Salim) for their time and expertise. We thank the organizers of CLPsych 2015 for providing us access to their datasets.  ...
