A homeless shelter in Suzhou has brought in trained psychologists to help vagrants get back on their feet.

People dropped off by police or social workers are now asked to complete a questionnaire designed by a professional agency to assess their mental health.

"Based on that information, psychologists will sit down with them to discuss long-term solutions, especially young people," deputy director Wen Hailan said.
