As we frequently get questions about where Thais can go for treatment of serious mental illness:


There are 18 specialized government psych hospitals in Thailand :




Rajanukul Institute

Somdet Chaopraya Institute of Psychiatry  (Thonburi area)


Chiang Mai

Rajanagarindra Institute of Child Development

Suanprung Psychiatric Hospital


Khon Kaen

Khon Kaen Rajanakarindra Psychiatric Hospital



Loei Rajanakarindra Psychiatric Hospital


Nakhon Phanom

Nakhon Phanom Rajanakarindra Psychiatric Hospital


Nakhon Phatom

Galaya Rajanakarindra Institute (Buddhamonthon)



Nakhon Ratchasima Rajanakarindra Psychiatric Hospital


Nakorn Sawon

Nakhon Sawan Rajanakarindra Psychiatric Hospital



Srithanya Hospital


Sa Kaew

Sa Kaew Rajanakarindra Psychiatric Hospital


Samut Prakan

Yuwaprasart Waithayopathum Hospital



Songkhla Rajanakarindra Psychiatric Hospital


Surat Thani

Suan Saranrom Psychiatric Hospital

Ubon Ratchathani

Prasrimahabhodi Psychiatric Hospital


Each covers a specific catchment area. Generally speaking the one closest will be the one that covers a particular location but to be sure, ask the local provincial hospital staff as they will know.

Treatment is free (or nominal 30 baht cost) provided a referral is obtained from the hopsital at which the patient is registered under the "30 baht" (AKA "Gold Card") scheme.


As with any government hospitals -- and especially specialized ones -- long waits and crowded conditions are the norm. Some of these hospitals have after hour clinics, a quasi-private arrangement whereby the senior doctors can be seen by appointment. This will not be covered under the "30 baht" scheme but costs are pretty reasonable and it can be worth it to have more time spent by the doctor and to go straight to a senior doc as care will others be largely by residents in training under their supervision. It is possible that medications will still be covered under the free system though, I am not clear on that point.


In addition, all teaching hospitals and regional hospitals will have at least one psychiatrist on staff.
