The Chinese says:

jīngshén jiànkāng fángzhì zhōngxīn


"Mental Health Prevention and Treatment Center"

The operative expression, fángzhì 防治, can mean "prevention and cure; preventive treatment; prophylaxis and treatment".  They completely forgot the second part.

    I suppose if someone's ailments are not cured after visiting this clinic, they have no reason to complain!

    As a friend of mine commented when I put this on FB: No head injury is too trivial to ignore.
