markers in the brain. thank you and welcome, cindy. it geesed to have you with us this morning. >> thank you. it's food to be here. >> let me ask you about this. there are about 10,000 kids participating in the study. how are researchering getting to them them. they made contact with the borough residents and contact with the clinicians in the area. many of the kids coming to them have been referred to by pediatricians. the family that i spoke to came to them through a social services agency. >> i got you. >> i would also add they have this mow van they're taking out to all of the different boroughs where they're trying to recruit families as well. >> certainly families that can't get in to see them, correct? >> right.
i think they'll eventually make it to all the boroughs so people won't have to come to staten island. the mri machine will go to all the boroughs. >> that's fascinating. what is the ultimate goal? >> the ultimate goal is to improve diagnosis for children who have mental illness and the scientists want to get to one point where you can see a biomarker, this physical proof of mental illness disappear when a treatment is given so it would improve treatment. and i think a lot of families struggle with getting proper treatment for their children and knowing what to do. >> sure. and knowing what to look for as well. how long does this study last? >> it's going to taken five years to scan 10,000 brains and then it will take at least another five years if not longer to reach these ultimate goals if they are, in fact, reached. >> the kids that are involved in
from the outcome as well, or is it purely science in their case? >> i think it's purely science in their case. they're getting free mental health evaluations in their case. usually research projects give them that. this is giving free screenings and then referrals. the scientists say that that's really important in places where there are no mental health services or very few mental health services such as stan tin island. >> this helps with that, yes? >> yes. i think that's the idea behind it that they'll be able to get referrals and services they need. >> there's never been a study of this magnitude before, has it? 10,000 children is unprecedent. >> yes. that's my understanding. i talked to somebody from the national institute of mental health who said research-wise
sample that she knows of. >> and they're looking for these biomarkers in the brain that may indicate that the child has the potential to develop a mental illness down the road? >> that's another part of the goal of the study, which is to be able to predict risk. to be able to predict ifs and to be a able to look at it town the line. i did speak to a doctor about expressing caution for telling a family that your child is at risk for something because unless there's a lot of proof, you're really sure because that can change the trajectory. that can change how a person feels or a family trieds their child. >> hopefully a step in the right drekd when it comes to kids getting care, the care that they need. >> yes.
welcome back on saturday morning. they have set big goals and the knicks drop in on the nets. >> john chandler has sports. >> the only surprise from this year's team would be missing the playoffs. the amazins held their first official workout on friday amid all sorts of expectations. pitching is the strength of the
surprised everyone. zack wheeler will join them later in the summer. but veteran david wright stole the show. the mets captain reaching the world series again just won't cut it. >> i think my message would be don't let last year be a pinnacle of what this team is able to accomplish. let's take it one step further this year and then we can really celebrate it. >> i like it. meanwhile the yankees await word on chapman. chapman is not face nation prison charges. meanwhile ceecee sabathia. he said it's something he's glad
