History of MMHA

The Malaysian Mental Health Association (MMHA) was founded by faculty members of the Department of Psychology Medicine, Medical Faculty, University Malaya. It was initiated by Prof. N.N. Wagner (US) Acting Head of the Department at its first meeting on 5th October 1967. Two others who played a significant role in laying the groundwork for the establishment of MMHA were Prof. Tan Eng Seong who took over as the Head of Psychological Medicine Department, as well as Ms. P.C. Sushama, the Chief Medical Social Worker in University Hospital.

MMHA was officially registered on 30th July 1968 under the Societies Act 1966. Tun V.T. Sambanthan, the then Minister of Works, Posts and Telecommunications, was elected its first President at its inaugural meeting on 18th September 1968.

The initial idea of forming MMHA was to provide community support for those recovering from mental illness as well as to promote better mental health awareness through public education. MMHA has since moved on to providing various psychological support services, mental health education and training, caregiver and peer support, psychosocial rehabilitation and residential service as well as a strong advocate for mental health in the country.

The Mind Hub

The Mind Hub provides affordable counselling and psychotherapy service as well as psychological assessment,

Opened in October 2019, “The Mind Hub” is MMHA’s newest centre located in TTDI, on the outskirts of Kuala Lumpur, where clients (between 18 to 60 years) can come to meet mental health professionals, including counsellors, clinical psychologists, and psychiatrists.

Clients can also opt to see trainee mental health professionals who are second year supervised Masters’ students. Special peer support group and caregiver training are also conducted here.

This new centre is equipped with cosy and sound-proof spaces for private therapy sessions. Its location was also carefully chosen as it is a very short walk away from the MRT Taman Tun Dr Ismail Station (SBK10) and its easy accessibility via other modes of transport too.
