The increase in teen

classes started at 8: 45 a.m.
The percentage of patients treated in
community mental health clinics for a first
episode of schizophrenia who received
medications that do not comply with
recommended guidelines for first-episode

antipsychotics, more than one antipsychotic,
and other problematic prescriptions.
The annual cost of disease-associated malnutrition in the United States, according to a
study in the Journal of Parenteral and Enteral
Nutrition. Disease-associated malnutrition
results from illness rather than poverty, and is
due to factors such as appetite loss and higher
metabolic requirements in some sick patients.
The study found that more than 80 percent
of the societal cost came from patients with
depression, chronic obstructive pulmonary
disease, coronary heart disease and dementia.
