In this paper we propose a method for computer based depression detection. It is focusing on two aspects: gathering conversations and getting only the patient's audio and creating a deep learning model for automatic depression detection. Convolutional Neural Network (CNN) classifier is used to find patterns in audio characteristics of the depressed patients. This training is carried out on DAIC-WOZ Dataset from USC's Institute of Creative Technologies and it was released as part of the
