Mental Health Foundation was established in January 2012 by a group of professionals engaged in mental health and concerned members of the public. We pledge to promote the importance of mental wellness and orchestrate a collective effort to making Hong Kong a mentally healthy city.
Our first mission was to set up our Drug Subsidization Programme to address patients’ immediate needs. It was the first of its kind in Hong Kong. We collaborated with Hospital Authority, pharmacists and pharmaceutical companies to subsidize underprivileged patients suffering from mood disorders with advanced medications that had fewer side effects but were not publicly financed under Hospital Authority’s Drug Formulary. Our Programme has benefited many patients, and continue to benefit those in need from such advanced medication. Since then, we have expanded our services to other areas all sharing the same theme, that is, to advance mental wellness to patients, their relatives and the public especially for young people.
Envisioning Hong Kong to be a mentally healthy and stigma-free city, we will invest our knowledge and resources to move the society forward in achieving mental wellness.
To advance mental wellness for the people of Hong Kong as an impactful grantmaker and catalyst for change by advocating for a high quality mental health service in collaboration with different parties.
Our team is formed by a group of professionals working in the field of mental health, hoping to invest our knowledge and resources to move the society forward in achieving mental wellness.
