Background & Objectives
Joyful (Mental Health) Foundation (JMHF) is a registered non-profit-making charitable organization established in 2004 by Ms. Victoria Lam and a group of enthusiastic volunteers. Ms. Lam was once a victim of mood disorder. Depression is a common illness worldwide, according to the latest estimates from WHO, with an estimated 3.8% of the population affected, including 5.0% among adults and 5.7% among adults older than 60 years.
The public still have many misunderstandings about mood disorders. As a result, many patients suffering from mood disorders fail to receive proper treatment in time; some even commit suicide. Therefore, JMHF endeavors to promote public understanding of mood disorders, reduce discrimination, and provide counselling services, resources and assistance to patients and their families.
Joyful (Mental Health) Foundation is a non-subvented NGO, all of our income relies on fundraising activities as well as donation from our kind-hearted donors.
