Abstract

Depression is a common but ominous psychological disorder that threatens one's quality of life. The screening and grading of depression is still a manual process and grades are often determined in ranges, e.g., 'mild to moderate' and 'moderate to severe' instead of making them more specific as 'mild', 'moderate', and 'severe'. Such grading is confusing and affects the management plan. Given this practical issue, the present paper attempts to differentiate depression grades more accurately using a Back Propagation Neural Network (BPNN) classifier, built in MATLAB. The overall accuracy of the classifier is 100% for mild, 77% for moderate and 90% for severe grades with a good model fit (R=94%).
