A Psychiatry Professor Talks about the Case of Psychotic Killer Fu Yibin
(Clearwisdom.net) China's mental patients' crimes are worsening everyday because of lack of systematic cooperation among families, hospitals and police departments.
I am a teacher at the Psychology Department at the University of Zhongshan in Guangzhou City, Guangdong Province and I am also a doctor. After watching the TV program on the murder case of Fu Yibin, as a doctor, I felt very sad about this event. By looking at the pictures, I could tell that Mr. Fu showed signs of being a psychopath. He would have shown signs of a mental disorder for quite some time before he reached this level [of killing people]. Why did the hospital and police department not do anything about it?
Among my patients, there are a lot of people with mental illness that approach the level of insanity and yet are freely allowed to participate in social activities. The Chinese government still does not recognize this social problem.
China has the highest occurrence of mental illness within the international community. Especially within the last ten years, there have been approximately seven million people that become mental illness patients each year. China has become the worst-case country in the international community. Although certain actions have been taken, we are still lacking systematic cooperation among the various institutions in society. In addition, Chinese people usually cover up the fact that their family member has a mental illness. Presently, in virtually every big city, everyday, we can hear of similar acts committed by mental patients. The Chinese government should take urgent action against the wide spread problems caused by mental patients, and prevent them from killing people again.
