Prevention of youth suicides

in partnership with RSE on REU «Republican scientific-applied center of psychological health» of Ministry of Health of Republic of Kazakhstan.

Today more and more companies use AI technologies to analyze risk groups in social media.
In 2018, Canadian government together with Advanced Symbolics launched a pilot project to monitor social media for suicidal tendencies in general populace.

In USA, Crisis Text Line (helpline that uses text messages) implemented AI to analyze texts and emojis. This algorithm shows most prominent risk groups and prioritizes help to those who need it the most.
Facebook announced their own system that can identify suicidal posts. If it does find one, it sends the data to the "Help Center" which then processes it and try to help people in need.
In Kazakhstan, to date, there was no online solutions that work online to monitor and prevent suicides. This motivated us to initiate creation of our own project aimed at solving this problem.

. won research grant from Suleyman Demirel University to proceed with our findings in coming up with ways to find and prevent suicidal tendencies in school students.

Using this grant we, along with RSE on REU «Republican scientific-applied center of psychological health» of Ministry of Health of Republic of Kazakhstan, created complex system of software applications «ALEM MENTAL» . We use AI to monitor social media to find depressive behavior from teenagers.
At the moment project runs in pilot mode.
