Abstract
Understanding psychological teachers’ current work situation is a prerequisite of improving the level of mental health education in primary and secondary school. Using questionnaires developed by Institute of Educational Psychology and School Counseling of Beijing Normal University, the study surveyed 103 psychological teachers and 16954 students from 72 primary and secondary schools of eight provinces/cities in China. It focused on four aspects referring to psychological teachers’ work situation: the basic information of psychological teachers, their work content and time distribution, the professional training system, and the student feedback for mental health education. Based on the survey results, recommendations were put forward, including increasing the number of full-time psychological teachers, strengthening the in-service professional training, as well as expanding the influence of school mental health education.
