Feelings of emotional distress such as anxiety and depression are becoming increasingly prevalent in modern society. Without the proper resources, these feelings can escalate to unhealthy coping mechanisms such as self-harm and suicidal ideation. With the increased use of online communication, some people choose to express their feelings on social media platforms with the purpose of seeking help. However, in using this approach, a user may not receive relevant support. The purpose of this project was to create a solution to this problem: EzerBot ā€“ an intelligent chatbot. EzerBot uses a neural network to detect instances of emotional distress within online platforms. My Projectboard.
