Abstract: Community mental health has long been the crucial modality in service delivery of mental health services. This paper is an attempt to evaluate community mental health services in the People's Republic of China. The writer critically argues that community mental health services in the People's Republic of China still have faced a lot of difficulties such as huge demand but scarce resources, withdrawal of governmental funding in related services, inaccessibility of services to deprived and remote rural areas, political control, high mental health illiteracy and problems in formation of multidisciplinary team. An articulation of community mental health in the China context is also discussed.
