Q: Why are there no effective social services in China set up to combat depression?

The father should be thrown off the same building, and the teacher should have his testicles cut off with a rusty knife and thrown into the shark infested waters of the South China Sea. But, of course, this won't happen. The "teacher" is back in the classroom and will undoubtedly do the same thing to another student. And the police and fIremen are useless f***s. What a sad country this is:

Short answer, no.

 

Slightly longer answer, from what I've heard and read there is a social stigma attached to any kind of mental illness, so if people are suffering the family won't seek help for them, even assuming help is available, because they'd lose face. I guess this would include mental trauma from being sexually abused. Especially if there is money involved.

 

I saw this story about a week ago and there is just so much wrong with it, and with the fucking twisted, sick society that is responsible for it.

From the teacher abusing the girl, to the school and the father no doubt coming to some sort of financial arrangement to hush it up and then the crowd jeering and taunting the girl when she was on the edge of the building at her lowest point, then cheering when she jumped.

There are disgusting stories coming out of China pretty much every week but this was  one of those stories that just stood out for me somehow.

 

What made me think that China doesn't isn't completely without some hope and decent people though was reading (in a different article - it might have been in the Shanghaiist, I don't remember) that the fireman actually did his best to save her but she thanked him for trying before she let go and fell, and that a lot of netizens and probably some of the people watching too, were just as revolted by the peasants who cheered as the rest of us were.

 

RIP to the girl, she's in a better place.

I had my first student suicide at my high school may 5th, parents bought a house for the son in the hometown and he wanted to study and find a better job somewhere else, The older sister was working and parents wanted her to make the payments until he finshed school. He did not like the financial and study pressures so he jumped from the fourth floor after classes ended at 10 pm. The school covered up the news and I did not find out about until my local barber, gossip city hang out, told the wife the story 3 weeks later. We did get a student that had the 4th highest gaokao score in Shandong this year. The gaokao factory keeps moving on. One thing they should change is a student usually keeps the same Math teacher for every grade of high school, so the horny Math teacher has 3 years to find the vulnerable and weak girls to gain confidence with and take advantage of, not the first story I have seen of this happening.

Didn't know that about the fireman. Props to him; he's a rare breed in this country.

like all of us I've seen more cold-hearted behaivour here than anywhere else I've been.  Not sure how the Han came by it.  Maybe the super deprived 3000 years living conditions?  I dunno.  But they do cold, mean, vicious stuff without batting an eye.

 

PRC Theme Song:

 

 

                                   "Welcome To The Jungle"

Welcome to the jungle
We've got fun 'n' games
We got everything you want
Honey, we know the names
We are the people that can find
Whatever you may need
If you got the money, honey,
We got your disease

[Chorus:]
In the jungle
Welcome to the jungle
Watch it bring you to your
Knees, knees
I wanna watch you bleed

Welcome to the jungle
We take it day by day
If you want it you're gonna bleed
But it's the price you pay
And you're a very sexy girl
That's very hard to please
You can taste the bright lights
But you won't get them for free

In the jungle
Welcome to the jungle
Feel my, my, my serpentine
I, I wanna hear you scream

Welcome to the jungle
It gets worse here everyday
Ya learn ta live like an animal
In the jungle where we play
If you got a hunger for what you see
You'll take it eventually
You can have anything you want
But you better not take it from me

[Chorus:]
In the jungle
Welcome to the jungle
Watch it bring you to your
Knees, knees
I'm gonna watch you bleed

And when you're high you never
Ever want to come down, so down, down, yeah!

You know where you are?
You're in the jungle, baby
You're gonna die

In the jungle
Welcome to the jungle
Watch it bring you to your
Knees, knees

In the jungle
Welcome to the jungle
Feel my, my, my serpentine

In the jungle
Welcome to the jungle
Watch it bring you to your
Knees, knees

In the jungle
Welcome to the jungle
Watch it bring you to your...

It's gonna bring you down
Ha!

Actually, most tier 3 and above cities have a free mental health care clinic. I am friends with a nurse who works in the clinic in this small city. As mentioned above, there is a lot of stigma surrounding mental health care and according to my friend, few people make appointments and fewer show up for them.

Forward Question

Answer of the DayMORE >>
A: In my personal experience, teaching certificates have varied in releva
A:In my personal experience, teaching certificates have varied in relevance depending on the context and location. Here's a breakdown of each aspect:a) Getting the teaching job: Teaching certificates can certainly enhance your chances of securing a teaching position, especially in formal educational settings such as schools and language institutions. Many employers prefer candidates who have undergone specific training in pedagogy and instructional techniques, which these certificates often provide. However, other factors such as experience, references, and the demand for teachers in a particular area also play significant roles in the hiring process.b) Getting a higher salary than your uncertified competitors: In some cases, holding a teaching certificate can indeed lead to a higher salary compared to uncertified competitors. Many educational institutions have structured salary scales that take into account factors such as level of education, years of experience, and additional certifications. Holding a teaching certificate may place you in a higher salary bracket or make you eligible for certain salary incentives or bonuses. However, this can vary widely depending on the specific policies of the institution or organization.c) Getting promotions: Teaching certificates can be beneficial for career advancement and securing promotions within the field of education. They demonstrate a commitment to professional development and mastery of teaching skills, which are qualities that many employers value when considering candidates for leadership positions or administrative roles. Additionally, some promotions may require specific certifications or qualifications, making holding a teaching certificate essential for advancement in certain cases.Regarding which certificate yields better results, it largely depends on the specific requirements of the job market and the educational context in which you intend to work. For example:A Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) is often highly regarded in formal school settings and can be advantageous for those seeking positions in primary or secondary education.Montessori certification is valuable for individuals interested in working in Montessori schools or implementing Montessori principles in their teaching approach.A Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) certificate is particularly relevant for those seeking to teach English to non-native speakers in international contexts or language schools.Ultimately, the best certificate for you will depend on your career goals, the specific requirements of the positions you're interested in, and the preferences of potential employers in your target job market. It's essential to research the requirements and preferences of employers in your desired field and tailor your qualifications accordingly. -- ruqaiya761
