Mental Health in George Town

According to the George Town Mental Health Caring Association, in the year 2000, there were 20 million people in China with mental health problems. There are currently 200 million people with mental health problems in China. This is a major concern because it costs individuals and their families a significant amount of money when living conditions are not good.

This is a problem that’s been going on for some time now. In 2008, there were 30 million children living with mental health issues. And this number continues to rise as more people become affected by it every day.

In George Town, the number of individuals diagnosed with mental health problems was 1,399. This is a very big number because it covers about one percent of George Town’s total population.

The most common disorder in George Town was bipolar affective disorder, which accounted for 46 percent of all cases. Next came schizophrenia which accounted for 31 percent of cases and lastly, depression was at 25 percent. With these three disorders combined, they make up 96% to 98% of mental illnesses seen in George Town.

Over five percent said that they were admitted into the hospital due to their condition(s) or illness(s). Many cases are not diagnosed because people are unaware that there are treatment methods available to them if only they sought help. For those who do know and seek help, only a small number of these people are willing to be treated.


Almost half of the cases were said to have occurred in households where the families’ total income was low. This does not mean that being poor is what caused their illness or problem, but there seems to be a relationship between living conditions and mental health problems.

A large percentage of those suffering from mental illness are unemployed with about three-quarters of them being below 44 years old. The cost associated with treatment for China’s mentally ill is very high because it can take up to two months for treatment to commence even after diagnosis has been made.
