The Covid-19 outbreak has an unprecedented effects on people's daily lives throughout the world, causing immense stress amongst individuals owing to enhanced psychological disorders like depression, stress, and anxiety. Researchers have used social media data to detect behaviour changes in individuals with depression, postpartum changes and stress detection since it reveals critical aspects of mental and emotional diseases. Considerable efforts have been made to examine the psychological health of people which have limited performance in accuracy and demand increased training time. To conquer such issues, this paper proposes an efficient depression detection framework named Improved Chimp Optimization Algorithm based Convolution Neural Network–Long Short Term Memory and Natural Language Processing for Covid-19 Twitter data. In the proposed method, the tweets are pre-processed, user's frequent tweet identification, and hash tag identification has been done. The processed tweets are then clustered through cluster head selection using Swap-Displacement-Reversion-Bull based Optimization Algorithm and cluster formation using the Bregman distance-based K-Means algorithm. Then, the psycholinguistic features are extracted from the clustered data and inputted to the Improved Chimp Optimization Algorithm-based-Convolution Neural Network-Long Short Term Memory network for depression classification. Preliminary results show that the proposed method provides greater performance with 97.7% efficiency and outperforms the existing methodologies.
