must read: a look at mental health treatment in China

In the last two days, the New York Times had two really intriguing articles (to say the least) about the inadequacies of the mental health system in China. Please read:

“Life in Shadows for Mentally Ill in China,” by Sharon LaFraniere

“Outspoken Chinese Risk Confinement in Mental Wards,” by Sharon LaFraniere and Dan Levin
Activists say confinements in mental hospitals appear to be rising as authorities feel pressure to quell social               unrest.

 

Summarizing these articles in my own words will not do them justice.
