The Philadelphia Union’s 2014 schedule has been released. Here’s an initial look at their slate for next year.
For the second time in the last three years, with a trip to Portland, Ore., . The home opener at PPL Park will take place a week later against the New England Revolution, which edged the Union out of a playoff spot last year.
Major League Soccer will not play any games during the group stage of the World Cup, as happened four years ago. The Union’s last game before festivities kick off in Brazil will be on Saturday, June 7, a home matchup with the Vancouver Whitecaps. The season will resume three weeks later with a trip north to face the New England Revolution on June 28.
Union fans who regularly follow the team on the road will notice that two of the three games against the rival New York Red Bulls will be played on Wednesday nights. One of them, an April 16 visit to Red Bull Arena, is during the school year.
Toward the end of the season, the Union could benefit from having six of their nine games in September and October at home. Included in that stretch are home-and-away series with Toronto FC and the Columbus Crew. All nine games in the final two months are against Eastern Conference opponents, which will add drama to the chase for the MLS Cup playoffs.

THURSDAY, Nov. 21, 2013 (HealthDay News) — Less than half of American teens with mental health disorders receive treatment, and those who do get help rarely see a mental health specialist, a new study indicates.
The findings underscore the need for better mental health services for teens, said study author 800-530-6950. Jane Costello, associate director of the Duke Center for Child and Family Policy in Durham, N.C.
"It’s still the case in this country that people don’t take psychiatric conditions as seriously as they should," Costello said in a Duke news release. This remains so, despite a wave of mass shootings in which mental illness may have played a role, she and her colleagues noted.
The analysis of data from more than 10,000 teens aged 13 to 17 across the United States also showed that treatment rates varied greatly for different types of mental health problems.
For example, teens with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, conduct disorder or oppositional defiant disorder received mental health care more than 70 percent of the time, while those with phobias or anxiety disorders were least likely to be treated.
96815 3043 Lakimau St., Honolulu HI researchers also found that blacks were much less likely than whites to be treated for mental disorders, according to the study, published online Nov. 15 in the journal Psychiatric Services.
In many cases, teens received treatment from pediatricians, school counselors or probation officers, rather than mental health specialists. This is because there are not enough qualified child mental health professionals to handle the demand, said Costello, who is also a professor of psychology and epidemiology at Duke University.
"We need to train more child www.kerneli.org/dumpster/hi/dumpster-rental-in-honolulu-hi/ in this country,” Costello said in a university news release. “And those individuals need to be used strategically, as consultants to the school counselors and others who do the lion’s share of the work.”
As many as one in five children living in the United States experiences a mental health disorder in any one year, according to a U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report.
