Q: Is it possible to volunteer at a local mental health facility/hospital?

I've recently moved to Guangzhou from the United States with a BA in psychology. I'm here with a contract to teach English and would really like to get involved in some sort of volunteer work at a mental health facility. Unfortunately, I do not speak Mandarin (yet). I'm considering applying to graduate programs in multicultural psychology once I move back home and would really like to take advantage of my time in such a unique and diverse country.

If you mean work with the staff at the hospital it should be fine, but I doubt they would let you work with patents for many reasons one being they maybe their for their political ideas and not necessarily mental in any way....

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
