Chinese Mental Health Association

CMHA now provide a diverse range of services with the aim of serving Chinese people who suffer from mental health related issues and problems. We also provide support for their carers whom may not be familiar with all the nuances of traditional Chinese culture. Such is our growing scope of influence; we now operate at local, regional and nationals levels. As different people have a variety of needs, our services cater to all ages and social – economic demographics, this includes young children and teenagers, to adults and older people.

We recognise that mental health specialist work requires high levels of expertise. CMHA is fortunate in that its management committee, staff team and medical advisor, collectively have a wealth of expertise in black and ethnic mental health issues. They of course, are very familiar with Chinese mental health issues given their specialist background and training.

A majority of our work is documented by both the Chinese and mainstream media in the form of news / magazine articles, and television documentaries. Via greater educational drives and exposure via the media, we hope to alleviate the stigmas and prejudices which still surround Chinese mental health issues. Through exposure and training, more people are gaining a greater deal of knowledge on the matter and their views are slowly changing for the better.

CMHA are here to offer a shoulder of support to all those in need.
