to informed consent for medical activities, without distinction between persons with and without disabilities, to say nothing of discriminatory provisions against persons with disabilities. G . Since 2009, in line with the requirements for deepening the reform of the medical and health system in China, the service management for patients with severe mental illness has been incorporated into the national basic public health services system, which requires the grass-roots medical staff to pay regular visits to and manage these severe mental patients. A nation-wide mechanism and network for mental patients have been gradually put in place in which mental health medical institutions and primary health care institutions work together to take care of patients with severe mental illness. The new Rural Cooperative Medical Care System (RCMCS) and the Urban Resident Basic Medical Insurance (URBMI) in 2011 successively extended their health insurance coverage to include severe mental disease in the major diseases to be covered, which means a reduction or exemption of expenses for inpatient and outpatient medical treatment and which has relieved these patients of their medical care burden. 15

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
