In China, Mental Disease Common And Untreated: Study

From AFP:

Far more people in China suffer from mental disease than previously suspected, with most going untreated, according to a major study unveiled Friday.

The largest health survey of its kind ever conducted in China estimates that 173 million adults have some type of mental disorder, and that 158 million of them — 91 percent — have never received professional help.

In many middle-income countries, including China, neuropsychiatric conditions are the leading cause of ill health in both men and women, easily outstripping infectious and cardiovascular disease, according to the study.
