Psychiatric service Enomoto Clinic expands to Thailand


Introducing “Alternative Therapeutic Activities” — a new dimension of Mental Health care with over 30 years of experience

With Thailand experiencing a twofold increase in mental health cases over the past six years, Enomoto Clinic aims to enhance mental healthcare standards in the country. Leveraging 30 years of expertise, the clinic introduces cutting-edge and holistic mental health solutions for those grappling with anxiety, stress, insomnia, and depression—key contributors to addiction and enduring health issues. Offering diverse programs such as music therapy, sports, and traditional Japanese arts, the clinic empowers individuals to overcome these hurdles and cultivate fulfilling lives within society.

Enomoto Minoru (榎本 稔), M.D., Ph.D., The Founder and Chairman of Enomoto Clinic Group shares his vision behind the clinic expansion to Thailand: At Enomoto, we recognize the growing urgency and the importance of mental health in modern society. We are committed to expanding our reach to people in need. As part of the mission, we have strategically chosen Thailand as the first country in Southeast Asia.

“At Enomoto Clinic, we recognize the necessity to respond to the needs of modern society. We offer personalized counselling and alternative treatment during the “Day Care” to suit individual needs in this modern era.” — said Enomoto Minoru (榎本 稔), M.D., PhD.

Supporting Thai government policies to improve mental wellness, Enomoto Clinic is taking part in the “One District, One Psychiatric Clinic” initiative, providing mental health services closer to your home. The clinic plans to expand its services by accepting social security, Universal Coverage Scheme, and other related insurance benefits.

Pol. Maj. Gen. Dr. Sanchai Wasunthara, Medical Advisor for Mental Health and Psychiatry at Enomoto Clinic, said that Enomoto Clinic aims to be a place where people come to share their worries and counsel with licensed and expert medical professionals. We offer various therapy programs, including programs based on Japanese culture: 1. Origami — A traditional Japanese paper folding 2. Otemae — An art of tea ceremonial while learning Japanese culture 3. Chigiri-e — A Japanese art form of tearing coloured paper and pasting it together to create a picture. 

They are part of the “Day Care” program, a therapy program based on Japanese culture. At Enomoto Clinic, we want our clients to feel like we are their second home where they can relax and feel safe.

“I am so grateful to be part of Enomoto Clinic and to be able to assist people who are experiencing mental health problems, providing them with relief from anxiety and enabling them to return to society with confidence and peace of mind” — expressed Pol. Maj. Gen. Dr Sanchai Wasunthara.

On April 6 2024, Enomoto Clinic was delighted to announce its first flagship clinic in Thailand. Celebrating this milestone, the clinic was also honoured to have Dr Mathurada Suwanpho, Deputy Director-General of the Department of Mental Health, preside over this festival. The announcement attracted much attention from government and private organizations, including Mahachulalongkornrajavidyalaya University and Srithanya Hospital.

Dr. Mathurada Suwanpho said “The number of mental health patients in Thailand has doubled over six years. Hospitals across the country have faced challenges in accommodating the increasing number of patients every year. Recently, we had a policy to increase the number of mental health service facilities in Thailand. So, I am happy to see the number of mental health services increase and very thankful to Enomoto Clinic for recognizing the importance of mental well-being and committing to elevate mental health in Thailand. I wish that Enomoto Clinic will continue to grow and succeed in helping people in Southeast Asia region.”

“Having a friend who can be there for me helps me get through problems. I have faced many difficulties in the past, but with the support from my family, friends, and loving fans, I have been able to get through them. They are the ones who keep me going. I want to send this message to encourage those who are going through tough times. Please don’t give up.
