TechFirst Show Features Mental Health Trajectories Project

“Studies say you can prevent about 50% of mental health challenges if you catch and address them early. Doctors from Cincinnati Children’s hospital are using the world’s second-most powerful supercomputer and AI to help solve mental health right at the start: when we’re kids.

This is a big deal.”

That’s the intro to the TechFirst interview with John Pestian, PhD, MBA, who is working with the Oak Ridge National Laboratory to crunch a massive amount of data in order to develop “trajectories” that can indicate whether a child is on a path that leads to mental disorders such as anxiety, depression or suicide ideation.

Check out Pestian’s interview with John Koetsier, host of TechFirst, on YouTube or via Podcast or Online.
