Mental illness is becoming one of the major problems of our society. The World Health Organization predicted that depression would be the world’s leading cause of disability by 2020. The exact causes of many mental illnesses are still unknown, mainly due to the complex nature of mental health. In this paper, the authors propose a multi-agent system designed to assist in effective and efficient management, retrieval and analysis of mental health information. They utilize the TICSA approach to define different agent Types, their Intelligence, Collaboration paths, address Security problems and Assemble individual agents. They use UML 2.1 Sequence and Composite diagrams to model social and goal-driven nature of the multi-agent system. The proposed multi-agent system has the potential to provide and expose the knowledge that will increase our understanding and control over mental health and help in development of effective prevention and intervention strategies.
