Editorial: From risk prediction to action: leveraging electronic health records to improve pediatric population mental health
The identification of child, family, and other environmental factors that confer risk for poor developmental outcomes has long been a major theme in child and adolescent psychopathology research. Over the past 6 decades, the Journal of Child Psychology & Psychiatry has seen an exponential increase in articles that have included the search term ‘risk prediction’, with 17 such works appearing in the 1960s and 930 occurring in the 2010s. Indeed, the current issue of JCPP continues this trend with a number of high‐quality studies that in some capacity seek to predict poor child and adolescent outcomes on the basis of variables that can be measured earlier in development.
