The Mental Health Association of Hong Kong (MHA) has come into existence in 1952 in the form of a Mental Health Study Group, with the primary objective of promoting and educating the general public on mental health. By 1954, the Study Group had grown into a Mental Health Association, which was duly registered with a simple constitution. Incorporation under the Companies Ordinance took place in 1970.
The Association joined the World Federation for Mental Health in 1965 and became a member agency of the Hong Kong Council of Social Service and the Community Chest of Hong Kong in 1968 and 1969 respectively.
