2 a.m. in the morning, Siming YANG, 37 years old, stood on the 4-meter-high roof, sucked his cigarette abruptly looking at the southwest. That's the Airport Economic Development Zone in Yuncheng, Shanxi. Skyscrapers are vaguely visible under the shining neon. It is ‘a world in city' that he has been longing for. Siming YANG had been suffering from depression for 18 years. He dropped out of school because of the disorder. For several times he went out of his village to work in cities, but had to return to the village time and again due to the depression. "If there is a day when I get over the illness, I still want to experience the world in the city."

Patients with depression are sensitive, suspicious, and tend to get into a dead end easily.Their most obvious feature is that they could not liveas normal people, with suicidal tendencies. According to the introduction of Tao JIANG, the attending physician of psychiatry in Beijing Anding Hospital, that most people still have very superficial understanding of Depressive Disorder. Now there are over 90 million people suffering from depression in China. But only less than 1% of the existing depression patients receive relevant medication.
