Tells of Work For Patients At Research WILLIAMSFIELD—The sometimes unusual behavior of adolescents is "normal" and is the result of being "partly children growing up and partly young adults trying to find a place in life," members of the Williamsfield Junior Woman's Club were told Wednesday. Speaker was Mrs. Mildred Smith, social case worker at Galesburg State Research Hospital, who is helping the club to gain a greater insight into the problems and needs of the adolescents with whom they visit as group members of the hospital's volunteer services program. Mrs. Smith said that even well adjusted adolescents have many problems and that no child can take suppression for long without "exploding" in some way. For the mentally disturbed, adjustment is more difficult and requires special understanding on the part of the parents and the community to provide a balanced environment in which these adolescents may find their place as mature individuals. Lower Stay She told of the earlier diagnoses and intensified treatment methods now in use in mental hospitals, which, with medications available, have lowered the average length of stay in the hospital to five months, with a continued lowering of the average daily number of patients hospitalized. She cautioned that there is, at the same time, a greater number of new patients entering treatment. Commenting on this more rapid discharge of increasing number of patients, coupled with the new emphasis on treatment of the mentally ill in their own community. Mrs. Smith said, "We now know that in most cases the stay in the hospital will be short, so families and community must be brought within the area of acceptance of the returned patients." Mrs. Smith told the club members, "Your work as volunteers at Research Hospital is invaluable; both to the patients and in giving your community the same knowledge you have concerning the mentally ill."
