Abstract: Psychological State or Depression is a looming mental health problem in the society. This, negatively affects many families, relationships, jobs. But to provide effective treatment, there is no awareness about this. Most people do not give much thought to this as they do to physical problems due to reasons which include that they are shy, afraid or negligent about this. A feasible solution to this is to create awareness about this so that people can actively seek out help and just not choose to suffer in silence. This paper proposes an approach to detect psychological state or depression in people using mainly non-verbal and involuntary cues with the help of a standard questionnaire. The subject wears the Mind Wave device by Neuro Sky and pairs it with a smartphone. Then a standard questionnaire is answered during which the data on brain waves and emotions are collected simultaneously by Mind Wave and the smartphone camera respectively. The data collected is then used to train a model that will give a score pertaining to the severity of depression in a person, thus aiming to give a better accuracy compared to all the devices present.
