    <subfield code="a">&lt;p&gt;Code for the NLP COVID-19 Workshop @EMNLP2020&amp;nbsp;paper &amp;quot;Quantifying the Effects of COVID-19 on Mental Health Support Forums.&amp;quot; Laura Biester and Katie Matton contributed equally to this project.&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Abstract:&lt;/strong&gt;&amp;nbsp;The COVID-19 pandemic, like many of the disease outbreaks that have preceded it, is likely to have a profound effect on mental health. Understanding its impact can inform strategies for mitigating negative consequences. In this work, we seek to better understand the effects of COVID-19 on mental health by examining discussions within mental health support communities on Reddit. First, we quantify the rate at which COVID-19 is discussed in each community, or subreddit, in order to understand levels of pandemic-related discussion. Next, we examine the volume of activity in order to determine whether the number of people discussing mental health has risen. Finally, we analyze how COVID-19 has influenced language use and topics of discussion within each subreddit.&lt;/p&gt;
