Abstract


The continued growth of mental health service has raised concerns about mental health service needs (MHSN)
among Chinese urban residents. This exploratory survey uses a national sample from 35 communities of 30 cities
covering all ranks of economics status in China, measured as the intensity and pattern of MHSN. The intensity of
MHSN reported by respondents is moderate; it is significantly related to race, household income, residence and
education. Implications for policy makers and services professionals are discussed to better Chinese mental
health services.
