About Hong Fook

Hong Fook, meaning “Health” and “Felicity” in Chinese, has been serving the Asian communities in the Greater Toronto Area since 1982. We strive to address the mental health concerns of the Cambodian, Chinese (Cantonese and Mandarin), Korean and Vietnamese communities.

Founders of Hong Fook Mental Health Association began an ethno-cultural consultation liaison service in 1978, which led to the formation of Hong Fook in 1982. To further our mission and vision, a charitable foundation was established in 2003. Hong Fook’s major funders include Central East Local Health Integration Network, the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care, United Way of Toronto and York Region, the City of Toronto, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada, and Human Resources and Skills Development Canada.

Our mental health services cover the spectrum from showing people how to stay healthy to helping them recover from illness, which include:

  • Clinical Services – Intake, Case Management, Support Within Housing, Group Psychotherapy, and the Asian Community Psychiatric Clinic
  • Self Help Programs
  • Family Initiatives
  • Prevention and Promotion Programs
  • Youth Programs – Youth Outreach Worker Program, CHOICES, and York Region Youth Project
  • Training Programs – Journey to Promote Mental Health training for staff serving immigrants and refugees, and Workplace Wellness Training

Vision: A multicultural community that understands mental health and accepts mental illness.

Mission: Hong Fook Mental Health Association works with Asian communities to keep people mentally healthy and manage mental illness from recovery to wellness, through promotion and prevention, treatment, capacity building and advocacy.
