About Us
NeuroLinks - Neuropsychiatric Centre by the Psychiatrist

NeuroLinks was founded by our psychiatrist Dr. Au in Nanaimo, located in Central Vancouver Island in British Columbia.

NeuroLinks aims to improve mental wellbeing and quality of life for patients struggling with mental disorders. We understand that medication is not the only answer for many patients. We believe in patient autonomy and tailoring your healthcare to your needs, and offer transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) as an aid in enhancing your recovery or as an alternative to unsuccessful treatments.

NeuroLinks is extending its scope beyond TMS by introducing ketamine therapy and plans to introduce even more innovative treatments to support our patients.

Dr Chi Hung Au

PSYCHIATRIST

Dr Au has a strong interest in biological psychiatry. Dr Au received his medical education at the Chinese University of Hong Kong. After finishing the psychiatric residency, he furthered his training in neuromodulation and attended the TMS course at the University of Harvard. He also later received a Master of Science at the University of Oxford.

Dr Au helped establish the TMS centre in Queen Mary Hospital, which is affiliated with the University of Hong Kong. After moving to British Columbia, he has observed a gap between pharmacotherapy and neuromodulation. With the establishment of NeuroLinks, he aspires to deliver cutting-edge neuropsychiatric treatment to patients.

Dr Au is interested in Japanese literature and Sanshin music.
