The report to the 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China points out that “with long years of hard work, socialism with Chinese characteristics has entered a new era” and that “the principal contradiction in Chinese society has become the contradiction between unbalanced and inadequate development and the people’s ever-growing needs for a better life.” Xi Jinping has stressed the need to “strengthen the development of the system of social and psychological services, and foster a social mentality of self-respect, self-confidence, rationality, calm and positivity”. Ten departments, including the National Health Commission and the Ministry of Civil Affairs, jointly issued the “Work Plan for the Construction of the National Social Psychological Service System Pilot” : “Exploring the mode of social psychological service and accumulating experience for the construction of the national social psychological service system.” A series of measures taken by the Party and the state show that a better life and a positive attitude in society are the requirements of the Party and the state and the call of The Times of the people. Guangdong Academy of Happiness and Positive Psychology was established in order to serve the needs of the Party, the country and the people.
