International Committee Members

Past President WFMH.


My commitment and devotion to mental health stems from my role as chief executive of Hong Kong New Life Psychiatric Rehabilitation Association for 28 years and then after my retirement I became the President of World Federation for Mental Health from 2011-2013 and now I am its Past President. I fully support and participate in the World Dignity Project as it promotes the full participation of all stakeholders including the service users, their families and carers. Ever since 2015, I participated the Lille Conference on World Dignity Project, I promote the same concept in Hong Kong and right now when we are planning our future direction, we include both service users and their families in deliberating their needs and their voices can be heard by the policy makers and also shaping the policy too. Promotion of World Dignity Project around the world is a priority for all who are dedicated to mental health
