    Towards suicide prevention from bipolar disorder with temporal symptom-aware multitask learning

    Bipolar disorder (BD) is closely associated with an increased risk of suicide. However, while the prior work has revealed valuable insight into understanding the behavior of BD patients on social media, little attention has been paid to developing a model that can predict the future suicidality of a BD patient. Therefore, this study proposes a […]

    Feasibility of emotions as features for suicide ideation detection in social media

    Suicide-related social media message detection is an important issue. Such messages can reveal a warning sign of suicidal behaviour. This paper examines the efficacy of using emotions as sole features to detect suicide-related messages. We investigated two methods which use a single emotion and a set of seven emotions as features respectively. For emotion classification, […]

    Self-adapted utterance selection for suicidal ideation detection in Lifeline conversations (IN Findings of the Association for Computational Linguistics: EACL 2023, edited by A. Vlachos & I. Augenstein)

    This paper investigates a crucial aspect of mental health by exploring the detection of suicidal ideation in spoken phone conversations between callers and counselors at a suicide prevention hotline.These conversations can be lengthy, noisy, and cover a broad range of topics, making it challenging for NLP models to accurately identify the caller’s suicidal ideation. To […]

    Combining psychological theory with language models for suicide risk detection (IN Findings of the Association for Computational Linguistics: EACL 2023, edited by A. Vlachos & I. Augenstein)

    With the increased awareness of situations of mental crisis and their societal impact, online services providing emergency support are becoming commonplace in many countries. Computational models, trained on discussions between help-seekers and providers, can support suicide prevention by identifying at-risk individuals. However, the lack of domain-specific models, especially in low-resource languages, poses a significant challenge […]

    Suicide Prevention in Indigenous Communities: Proceedings of a Workshop (2022)

    Indigenous communities experience higher risks for suicide compared to the general U.S. population, with suicide as the second-leading cause of death among Indigenous children and young adults in North America.

    Ethical issues found in healthcare providers in suicide prevention in Indonesia

    The suicide rate is increasing and gaining attention in several developed countries, but in most developing countries, it is often ignored.

The existence of […]

    Suicide from media portrayals and reality: Analysis of Netflix’s serial 13 Reasons Why

    The release of 13 Reasons Why on Netflix has led to controversy regarding its influence on teen audience, which is this series’ major target audience. Due to teenagers’ susceptivity about environment, and their relatively fragile mental stability, this subject – media and teenager’s well-being — worth noticing. Several literature reviews of previous studies illustrate the main arguments […]

    Tweet classification to assist human moderation for suicide prevention

    Social media platforms are already engaged in leveraging existing online socio-technical systems to employ just-in-time interventions for suicide prevention to the public. These efforts primarily rely on self-reports of potential self-harm content that is reviewed by moderators. Most recently, platforms have employed automated models to identify self-harm content, but acknowledge that these automated models still […]

    Towards ordinal suicide ideation detection on social media

    The rising ubiquity of social media presents a platform for individuals to express suicide ideation, instead of traditional, formal clinical settings. While neural methods for assessing suicide risk on social media have shown promise, a crippling limitation of existing solutions is that they ignore the inherent ordinal nature across finegrain levels of suicide risk. To […]

    Cross-lingual suicidal-oriented word embedding toward suicide prevention

    Early intervention for suicide risks with social media data has increasingly received great attention. Using a suicide dictionary created by mental health experts is one of the effective ways to detect suicidal ideation. However, little attention has been paid to validate whether and how the existing dictionaries for other languages (i.e., English and Chinese) can […]

    Economic and climatic determinants of farmer suicide in the United States

    Farming has an elevated rate of suicide in the U.S. and elsewhere. This study explores a number of hypotheses as to causal factors explaining the high farmer suicide rate, including climate change (e.g., extreme temperatures, variable precipitation) and economic factors, such as price and income volatility. The CDC nonpublic vital statistic data is utilized on […]

    CEASE, a corpus of emotion annotated suicide notes in English

    A suicide note is usually written shortly before the suicide and it provides a chance to comprehend the self-destructive state of mind of the deceased.

    Comparing automatically extracted topics from online suicidal ideation and the responses they invoke

    Suicide is a national public health concern, claiming over one million lives each year worldwide. The ability to understand, identify, and respond to suicidal behavior remains a key priority in preventing suicide. As online social networks have grown in accessibility and popularity, it is increasingly common for users to both discuss mental health and receive […]

    Robust peer-monitoring on graphs with an application to suicide prevention in social net

    We consider the problem of selecting a subset of nodes (individuals) in a (social) network that can act as monitors capable of “watching-out” for their neighbors (friends) when the availability or performance of the chosen monitors is uncertain. Such problems arise for example in the context of “Gatekeeper Trainings” for suicide prevention. We formulate this […]

    Burnout and isolation among flight attendants: A test of the job demands-resources model.

    Flight attendants are typically characterized as being engaged in ‘emotional labour,’ which is defined as the effort, planning, and control needed to express organizationally desired emotions during interpersonal transactions. Emotional labour is always stressful and may result in negative job outcomes or health problems. Therefore, drawing on the main propositions of the JD-R model, together […]

    Rising morbidity and mortality in midlife among white non-Hispanic Americans in the 21st century.

    Midlife increases in suicides and drug poisonings have been previously noted. However, that these upward trends were persistent and large enough to drive up all-cause midlife mortality has, to our knowledge, been overlooked. If the white mortality rate for ages 45−54 had held at their 1998 value, 96,000 deaths would have been avoided from 1999Ð2013, […]

    Arts-based research in cultural mental health.

    Arts can be employed as a powerful tool to elicit thinking and discussion (thus generating and gathering data), as well as a means to report and disseminate findings. The arts have been used for decades in research and practice and they are increasingly being used, also because of a counter-movement to the dominance of positivist […]
