Social media is quickly becoming one of the most popular topics worldwide due to both the positive and negative impacts that it can have in all different aspects of a person’s life. Mental health being one of them since these platforms can either be a safe place for individuals to express their feelings and emotions, or a dangerous one where their mental illnesses can only elevate more. Guided by social media, the development of technology and the advancement of learning machine, this creative component investigates how mental health can be either positively or negatively impacted. I executed a literature review, using keywords to search articles in data mining of social media and technology in the perspective of mental health conditions. Results suggest that social media can be used as a tool to predict mental health issues and therefore prevent fatal actions taken by mental ill individuals.
