Mental health, by numbers

WONDERING about your intelligence, personality, sociability, mental state or vocational potential?

You can find out, scientifically, at the Shanghai Mental Health Center, which yesterday unveiled the city's first facility offering psychological measurement.

The service, known as psychometrics, uses questionnaires, tests and assessments. Bilingual service is available, officials said.

Hospital officials said the measurement can help get a clear and comprehensive understanding of one's personality and mental state.

"It is just like a mental health checkup, a different experience from diagnosis and treatment conducted between patient and doctor," said Dr Xiao Zeping, president of Shanghai Mental Health Center.

To make an appointment, call 5425-0486.
