One of the Social Media lab’s main goals is to produce research that actually has an impact on how people live and behave.  We hope to use our research findings to develop interventions to improve mental health and well-being. Modern technology – smartphones, machine learning and data mining, ubiquitous internet access – can help make these interventions even smarter and more effective.

The SML’s work on interventions started with an analysis of what kind of stress and anxiety management apps are available on the App Store.  The poster was presented at the 2016 CHI workshop on mental health and computing. You can click on the poster below to see a larger version.
