Who we are

The National Center of Neurology and Psychiatry (NCNP), located in the suburb of Tokyo, was established in 1986, as one of the six national centers of Japan. Our activities are characterized by close affiliation of two major Institutes (National Institute of Neuroscience and National Institute of Mental Health) and National Center Hospital of Neurology and Psychiatry. This effort is catalyzed by the Translational Medical Center, Integrative Brain Imaging Center, Center for Cognitive Behavior Therapy and Research and other facilities. Unlike similar medical institutions in the world, e.g. Max Planck Institute in Germany and the National Institute of Mental Health in the U.S, our Center is very unique and rare in that mental disorder, neurological disorder, muscular diseases, and developmental disorders are treated and researched at the same place. Accordingly, the NCNP may be called"The Only Flower in the World."

Our missions

donation

As"the only psychiatry & neurology center in the world,"the NCNP aims to enrich human health and welfare by providing high level medicine for patients with mental, nervous, muscular, or developmental disorders. Specifically, our endeavor include providing better treatments and developing a model medical care, based on cutting-edge research findings and technology in both basic and clinical fields. Highly dedicated doctors and co-medical staffs we train support these efforts.

Why your donation makes a difference

The range of activities, described above, is funded mainly by governmental budget (2014 FIY amount 4,246,000,000 JPY) and Hospital income (7,909,000,000 JPY).

Every effort has been made to maximize the cost-effectiveness of our performance in scientific and clinical fields. However, the recent initiatives by related governmental bodies pose us an even more stringent budget plan. As a result, part of research projects has been re-structured, resulting in, for example, a decrease in the number of personnel involved in academic work. Also, the lack of satisfactory understanding of the need to treat mental conditions continues to devalue the practice of psychiatrists, providing a hurdle against increasing the income of the Hospital.

These are part of the reasons why your generosity makes a difference. Many citizens in all countries, including yours, are suffering from disorders in the central nervous or muscular system. Probably, concerns on dementias, Parkinson's disease, depression, and developmental disorders are well shared in the public. However, the causes and therapeutics of many of these illnesses still remain to be explored and developed.

With your support and cooperation, our Center can maintain or even strengthen the muscles to conquer these difficulties facing the people on the globe. Donors may be eligible to place their names on the titles of departments, directorships, and facilities of the NCNP, depending on the conditions.
