Institute of Mental Health

Institute of Mental Health


Castle Peak Hospital (CPH) is the oldest and largest psychiatric hospital within the Hospital Authority. In addition to the provision of comprehensive psychiatric treatment and rehabilitation services, it has a long history and remarkable contributions in professional training, public education and research in mental health.

As it has become increasingly apparent that primary prevention strategies to increase positive mental health are an important integral part of a comprehensive mental health service, with the leadership of the Hospital Governing Committee (HGC) of CPH, the Institute of Mental Health (IMH) was set up in February 2002.

The Institute of Mental Health is a centre of excellence for promotion and advocacy of better community mental health, through advancing science and disseminating knowledge in mental illness and mental health by intensive education, quality training, and rigorous research.

Scope of Services

The IMH comprises different community members in governing the work of the Institute. The Executive Committee and her four subcommittees are responsible for the operation of the IMH. The four subcommittees are:

  • Public Education
  • Professional Training
  • Research
  • Art Facilitation and Hospital Archives
