Dr Larina Chi-lap Yim is a psychiatrist at Shatin Hospital’s Department of Psychiatry. In 2011, she collaborated with The Salvation Army, St. James’ Settlement and The Christian Concern for the Homeless Association to conduct a study to determine the prevalence of mental illness in the homeless population in Hong Kong. In 2014, Yim decided to take a step further and proposed the “Cure Angels” Community Health Service Spots project to The Salvation Army. Together, they set up the city’s first-ever mobile service station, offering physical and mental health examinations to homeless individuals.
