To combat child mental health disparities, Cincinnati Children's is investing an initial $10 million to launch a mental health "trajectories" project.

Through the project, the hospital is working with a supercomputer to build a tool that predicts the risk of a child developing a mental illness, according to a Nov. 8 news release. Drawing from various sources, researchers will compile and analyze data that is known to play a role in a child's mental health, such as family dynamics and economic status.

Working on the initiative are 25 scientists in nine research divisions at Cincinnati Children's and collaborators at the University of Cincinnati, Boulder-based University of Colorado and Oak Ridge (Tenn.) National Laboratory, according to a Nov. 8 news release.
