Improving Mental Health through Machine Learning

The Walsh Lab is a multidisciplinary team of investigators based in Biomedical Informatics combining clinical expertise with computer science and engineering.

Our research focuses on the application of data science to complex healthcare data to enable mental, behavioral, and population health. Our collaborators are internists, psychiatrists, psychologists, engineers, epidemiologists, statisticians, community case managers, mobile crisis teams, and more.

We translate our predictive algorithms through informatics and implementation science to the point-of-care. We have partnered with other research teams around the world to glean insights from these complex data to predict and prevent self-harm and to improve mental health.
