News from the Centers for Excellence in Nursing


Mental Health Care Center (MHCC)

Director: Associate Professor Dr. Patraporn Tungpunkom



On 20-21 January 2014 the Center held a conference on “Evidence-Based Practice in Mental Health Care: From Knowledge to Practice.” Over 150 nurses from all over Thailand attended this conference. Expert specialists from Thailand and abroad lectured on topics that ranged from evidence-driven practice and policy, family-focused practice in mental health care, best practices in mental health care across the lifespan, best practices for caring for people with depression, and community mental health care models in Thailand and Taiwan.  Participants remarked on how they were able to update their knowledge and skills and requested that the conference be held annually.


Assistant Professor Sombat Skulphan hosts a weekly community radio program on 92.25 mHz FM on mental health enhancement and mental illness prevention.  The program features a new topic each week and listeners can call in to ask questions and seek advice. FON bachelor students have opportunities to assist with the radio program.


MHCC is submitting a proposal to FON to fund a study to collect preliminary data on the use of evidence-based practice in mental health in Thailand. The first phase of the study will focus on 17 provinces in Northern Thailand. Psychiatric nurses will be surveyed on their attitudes, knowledge and practice pertaining to evidence-based methods.
