  • China wakes up to its mental health problems / The Economist (paywall)
    In China, attitudes toward mental illness are gradually improving and the country is making great efforts to tackle mental health conditions. Yet people who suffer from them still face imminent challenges, including mistreatment from mental hospitals, social discrimination, misplacement of psychiatric resources, and a shortage of experienced doctors.
  • Chinese converted out West are losing faith back home / Foreign Policy (paywall)
    Many Chinese students who have spent time abroad have converted to Christianity, yet large numbers of them gave up their faith after going home. In largely atheist China, “the supply of intimate church environments continues to fall short of evidently growing demand” while “many returning Chinese converts find churches at home a bit cold.”
