Lifeback: Priority Mental Health

The study is aimed at developing tool that will act as an Expert Support System for mental health professionals. The approach is to equip mental health care with the power of 5 Ps (Personalized, Precision, Proactive, Patient Centric, Preventive, and Participatory and Predictive). The strong relation between emotional stress and clinical depression has been well established through long research where stress is an important factor leading to depression onset. Likewise, it has also been established that acoustic features of speech and voice is highly correlated and has the capacity to recognise stress condition in patients. Thus, there is very strong correlation link between acoustic parameters of the speaker and the level of stress and clinical depression among these subjects. Using this combinatorial approach, the team intends to develop multi-mode channel and assess the onset of stress and depression.
