Extract

To the Editor: I was excited to see the informative and optimistic column on mental health reform in China by Tse and colleagues (1) in the July issue. The authors’ positive description of current developments inspires hope for this vast and influential country. As one might imagine, an increase in community mental health also makes political sense by creating a “harmonious” society, enhancing quality of life for people with mental illnesses, and reducing economic loss to the society. Such reforms have been long overdue.
