Suicide Note Reviewer is developed by the Pestian Lab for collecting and annotating suicide notes.
The process for doing so is: suicide notes are first uploaded to the system. Then they are transcribed into text format. Next they are reviewed twice for accuracy. Finally, human add the appropriate mental health terms to help computers learn how identify the emotions. Support for this effort comes from a number of sources, to which we are grateful. They include: Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center, National Institutes of Health, National Library of Medicine, the American Association of Sucididology, our many colleagues who have volunteered their time and expertise, and many volunteers whose life has been touched by suicide. Here are the detailed instructions.
