«Mental health has been one of the top issues that cost high econoomic burden to health care systems globally. It is particularly important for those developing countries with large populations.  However, it is until recently that global health challenges have extended its focus mainly from physical health to mental health.  As one of the deveoping countries with a 1.3 billion population, it is unavoidable for mainland China to face a similar problem on mental health issue. My presentation will highlight the needs and challenges of mental health and education in mainland China.”
