Join this chat live Sunday April 17, 2016 at 10pm EST … If not enjoy the thought provoking resources within the blog about how social media data can inform us about individual and community behaviors. The archive of the live guest will be embedded in there as well ….


Dr. Lyle Ungar will be chatting with #SPSM, 9pCT 4/17/16, about automated ways to analyze the content in social media data, and how this can be applied to the field of suicide prevention. You can read more about his work here and here and here.
