Title: Natural language processing for mental healthcare
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is an evidence based talk therapy for common mental health disorders, such as depression and anxiety, and is one of the treatments most frequently used in the UK. This talk presents some of the work done within the Ieso Digital Health R&D Lab where we employ techniques from NLP and data science to develop a deep understanding of how therapy works. The results of this work are used to build new tools for therapists, and to optimise processes that ultimately reduce suffering and help more people get better faster.
