Novel approaches are necessary to process this massive amount of data characterized by high volume, high velocity and high-variety information provided. Interdisciplinary methods that allow to analyse Social Big Data automatically using machine-learning tools to detect indicators of mental health problems by identifying differences compared to common activity- and communication-pattern. This talk will review and present new data on applications of social big data analysis to detect emerging signs of affective disorders in adolescents by identifying abnormalities in the structure of social networks, the use of specific words, and in the process how opinions and sentiments are communicated. Furthermore, it will be discussed how this line of research may contribute to develop more precise prediction models for early detection of mental disorders and personalised intervention programs.
