Abstract

This article summarizes the recent advances in Chinese psychiatry. There has been an explosion of increasingly sophisticated studies in Chinese psychiatry in the last fifteen years. This article begins with a discussion of the diagnostic frameworks developed and employed in China with a focus on the conceptual similarities to and differences from both the DSM-IV (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders) and the ICD-10 (International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems). It reviews the mental disorders in China with specific discussions on several disorders with culture-specific manifestations, including depression, eating disorders, and suicide. Apart from explaining the Chinese Classification of Mental Disorders (CMCD), a nosological system to capture locally recognized psychiatric disorders, it also discusses the stigma of mental illness and help-seeking in China and presents a review of treatment and outcomes.
