  • Chinese Suicides

A recent study shows that in China, about 250,000 people commit suicide every year, and suicide has become the prime cause for the death of young people.

Chinese society is seen by analysts as in a transitional period with economy developing quickly and social disparity becoming wider. The rapid changes in society can cause many people to suffer from mental stress leading to illness.

An investigation shows that in China, psychological diseases has surpassed that of cardiovascular diseases to become the most common disease. Another study shows that in China, some 30 million young people suffer from various kinds of mental illness, with between 21.6%-32% of them being primary or middle school students and 16%-25.4% being college students. The number of students suffering from mental diseases is still on the rise.
