Clinical notes of psychiatric patients are a rich resource for gaining a better understand of mental disorders and developing better phenotypes. In this master project, we use natural language processing on clinical notes of electronic health records (EHR) from Mount Sinai hospital system to develop meaningful language-based representations of patients with depression. With unsupervised machine learning, we aim to find categories that are closer to underlying mechanisms as well as subcategories that could inform treatment decisions.
