ConclusionsWe show that our proposed approach performs comparably to a centralized approach while minimizing network traffic compared to multishot methods.

This study aimed to examine the pattern of unmedicated schizophrenia patients in economically underdeveloped rural and urban areas of China. METHOD: A total of 4240 schizophrenia patients in Lanzhou (1720 rural and 2520 urban patients) registered in the community mental-health service system in Lanzhou, Gansu province were included. Their socio-demographic and clinical characteristics including medication treatment status were collected and analyzed. RESULTS: The proportion of unmedicated schizophrenia patients was 22.5% (n = 953) in the whole sample, with 32.3% (556/1720) in rural and 15.8% (397/2520...

CONCLUSION: The results of our study showed that the Chinese version of FROGS and mini-FROGS had good psychometric properties for assessing the social function of people with schizophrenia in China. In particular, the mini-FROGS version was better used in the clinical setting because of its convenience and efficiency. PMID: 31739130 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

The impact of recent polygenic risk scores (PRS) for psychosis, which combine multiple genome-wide associated risk variations, should be assessed on heritable brain phenotypes also previously associated with the illn...

Five years from now, the U.S.’ already overburdened mental health system may be short as many as 15,600 psychiatrists as the growth in demand for their services outpaces supply, according to a 2017 report from the National Council for Behavioral Health. But some proponents say that, by then, an unlikely tool—artificial intelligence—may be ready to help mental health practitioners mitigate the impact of the deficit. Medicine is already a fruitful area for artificial intelligence; it has shown promise in diagnosing disease, interpreting images and zeroing in on treatment plans. Though psychiatry is in many...

ConclusionMemory specificity was improved as indicated by increased AMS from pre ‐intervention measurement to 1‐month follow‐up. Other improvements in symptoms were not observed. Rather, some related maladaptive psychological processes and symptoms worsened during the training phase and regressed to baseline during follow‐up.

AbstractBackgroundPeople with severe mental illness (SMI) are two to three times more likely to be overweight and obese than the general population and this is associated with significant morbidity and premature mortality. Although lifestyle interventions can support people with SMI to lose weight, some are unable to make the necessary lifestyle changes or, despite making the changes, continue to gain weight.ObjectiveTo assess the feasibility and acceptability of delivering a full-scale trial evaluating whether liraglutide 3.0  mg, a once-daily injectable therapy, may be an effective treatment of overweight and obes...
