The National Center for Mental Health (Filipino: Pambansang Sentro ng Pangkaisipang Kalusugan), is a 4,200-bed psychiatric hospital occupying 47 hectares of land in the city of Mandaluyong, Philippines. It is PhilHealth-accredited. Formerly known as the Insular Psychopathic Hospital, the Mandaluyong Mental Hospital, and the National Mental Hospital, were established on 17 December 1928. It was founded in order to accommodate the increasing number of mental patients and other patients with related nervous system conditions who, in 1925, were being taken care of by two hospitals, namely the San Lazaro Hospital (in its “Insane Department”) and the City Sanitarium in the Philippines.

The insane asylum hospital was built under Philippine Public Works Act No. 3258 at a 64-hectare (160-acre) location in Barrio Mauway, Mandaluyong, Rizal near the City of Manila. Patients from the San Lazaro Hospital were transferred to the National Center for Mental Health in 1928. Patients from the City Sanitarium were transferred in 1935. The National Center for Mental Health is currently under the Department of Health. With the increasing number of patients being admitted, the center has resorted to soliciting donations from the private sector.

The National Center for Mental Health is classified as Special Research Training Center and Hospital under the Department of Health since January 30, 1987. As the leading mental health care facility, the center provides a comprehensive range of preventive, curative and rehabilitative mental health services. It has an authorized bed capacity of four thousand two hundred. As stated in Republic act 11036 or also known as Mental Health Act of 2018, the National Center for Mental Health, being the premier training and research center under the Department of Health, shall expand its capacity for research and development of interventions on mental and neurological services in the country.
