The use of data science in healthcare has been rapidly accelerating for several years, although data science applications designed to understand and address mental health problems have lagged behind the rest of the field. In many ways, however, mental health is the perfect application for healthcare data science: the burden of mental illness in the US is enormous, often unaddressed, and not fully understood, creating enormous potential for data-driven research and solutions. In this talk I will highlight the need for expanding the use of data science in mental health, walk through 3 case studies representing important advancements in this area, and describe one of my own research projects using Google search data to assess suicidality.
