The public psychological service system’s objective, whom it should serve, and what service it should provide are systematically analyzed with the application of the decision-making approach suggested by the system. The construction of the public psychological service system should adopt a strategy, where different research perspectives, multi-disciplines, and different research focuses are fully integrated. This includes an integration of individual, situational and social perspectives, an integration of foundation and applied psychological disciplines, and an integration of academic research and societal applications. Social psychology is the core building block of the public psychological service system. To develop an in-depth understanding of the mechanisms and processes of social governance, it is essential to integrate the approaches of both psychological social psychology and sociological social psychology. The construction of the public psychological service system is to build an enabling psychological environment that promots social development. It needs to take the perspective of social development and should explore the psychological pathways for social development in undertaking the task of multidisciplinary integration and social governance.

Key words: the public psychological service system, social governance, social development, psychology of social development
