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 Greater Toronto, the City of Toronto, York Region, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada, and Employment and Social Development Canada.

Hong Fook provides a continuum of integrated primary care and mental health services covering the spectrum from “promoting wellness” to “managing illness” in Asian communities, including:

  • Clinical Service – Intake, Case Management, Support Within Housing, Group Psychotherapy, and partnership with Asian Community Psychiatric Clinic and HF Connecting Health Nurse Practitioner-Led Clinic
  • Integrated Recovery Program
  • Family Support Program
  • Prevention and Promotion Program
  • Youth and Family Program
