Helplessness towards psychic problems in China

China with more than 1 Billion inhabitants only has about 25-35.000 psychiatrists and psychotherapists.

Bound feet

The feet of little girls had been bound to improve their beauty.

In old China there was a century long tradition on this. Forbidden in 1912 it did not put an and to this behavior.

The mothers of the girls had endured foot-binding as well and knew what pain and torment they were putting their own child through. But they knew, to make their daughter acceptable to society, to give their daughters the best possible life, this is something they had to do, however heartbreaking it was. We all want to be accepted, we all want to be loved, we want our children to have the best possible opportunities.

A cruel way of manipulating and dominating women`s body language. You can read more about the interviews with some old Chinese women, who had endured this experience until nowadays.

Young Chinese don’t look back

A scientific research from Beijing-University shows that 87 % of young Chinese engineers and natural scientists don’t want to return to China after their studies. Though Chinese government and Chinese economy have done a big investment in improving the conditions and requirements for motivation this result seems to be an alarm-signal.

The loss of those well-trained and high-performing specialists is borne by a well-trained competent and creative base of talents.

Therefore China does a lot of ………..
