My work focuses on mental health services. I collaborate closely with NGOs and clinics to understand and improve care for people with dementia, psychosis, and other mental health conditions. A key theme in my work is early detection and intervention (e.g., by promoting early symptom identification to inform help-seeking and evidence-based practice of cognitive stimulation). I am leading a project to test a community shared-care model of dementia with medico-social collaboration, and embarking on a project to pilot a collaborative stepped-care model for preventing late-life depression. I adopt the implementation science perspective to ensure that the tested services are feasible, scalable, and sustainable in the local context. My research work has led to over 50 international peer-reviewed publications and over 30 internal and external grants (as Principal investigator and co-investigator). A book I co-edited in 2013, Early Psychosis Intervention: A Culturally Adaptive Clinical Guide, summarizes early psychosis intervention development in Asia in the past decade. Currently I serve as the HKU Project Coordinator for a Certified Dementia Care Planner (CDCP) programme jointly organized with the Hong Kong Alzheimer’s Disease Association (HKADA) and the Alzheimer’s Disease International (ADI). The programme has trained over 200 social care and healthcare professionals since 2014.
