Our project

An increasing number of users are exploiting online social services to voice thoughts of depression and suicide. Although talking about "suicide" is at the top of the American Association of Suicidology’s list of suicide warning signs, it remains very tough to assess urgency when a suicide ideation is expressed on social media. In this project, we focus on the detection and prevention of suicide in social networks. The DontDoIt project is a result of collaboration between the University of Montpellier and the Psychiatric Emergencies and Post-Acute Care of Montpellier (CHU de Montpellier).

Currently, we are analyzing and monitoring the data of patients who attempted suicide, in order to early detect and prevent future suicide attempts.
We have developed some prototypes to collect data from some social media websites such as: Twitter, Facebook, Youtube and Instagram, and created a dashborad to allow psychiatrists to monitor and follow the patients.
