Almost every day I read a story from a different country describing the worsening state of mental health there. It’s difficult to tell whether this is a result of a genuine trend or simply a greater awareness of mental health problems. Either way I tend not to link to these stories because of their sad monotony. Instead I think I will add them to a roll call.
The first two countries are China and India. The report from China says that over a fifth of children suffer some emotional problems.
