    <p>Hi friends,</p> <p>As far as I can search on the net, there is no psychology clinic especially for foreigners in China. I would like to know whether you foreigners need any kind of psychology service&nbsp;when you are&nbsp;in China? And how do you get the service&nbsp;when you&nbsp;need it?</p> <p>My&nbsp;career&nbsp;interest is to offer a better life solution&nbsp;to people who are suffering from mental&nbsp;unhealthy situation. I&nbsp;am eager to hear comments&nbsp;and&nbsp;suggestions on that from foreigner's side.</p> <p>Thank you&nbsp;in advance for your feedbacks! ^ -^</p> <p>Best Wishes, Angela</p>

    Go to Beijing United Family Hospital -北京和睦家医院 - near the Lido Holiday Inn

    I saw a psychologist there a while ago, a really cool older Canadian guy who was extremely helpful. There is a staff of psychologists there but I just saw the one guy and because I had to pay out-of-pocket I have not been back. They cannot prescribe medication (truth be told, this was my purpose), but the value of laying all your pent up fears and anxieties on a professional ear is not to be underestimated.

    If you want drugs, you will be referred to another doctor.

    there are few choices in Beijing on this one. I know that there are some foreign shrinks around however, unless they are working on a sliding scale, they tend to be up near 1000 rmb an hour. so no thanks.

    Honestly, I am glad to hear about this. Someone needs to step up.

    There was a foreign guy I met 2 weeks ago, he asked me where the closest embassy was. He wanted to petition in front of an embassy, any embassy, for no reason.

    If I knew that a clinic for mentally ill existed in Beijing, I would have pointed him to that and said it was an embassy.
