Abstract

In order to explore the relationship between human social interaction and mental health, we investigated the correlations between the amount of face-to-face contact time and quantified mental health. Social interaction data were obtained by wearable sensing system for two organizations in Japan. In this study, we regarded face-to-face contact between individuals as social interaction. The mental health of individuals was measured by psychological questionnaire. We found that the social behavioral property of individuals tended to reflect quantified stress in both organizations. The results suggest the possibility that people who experience large amounts of social interaction tend to have less stress.
