you can't shoot at any hospital, let along at IMH.

all mental patients' identity are classified.

don't need to ask, the CEO will not grant anyone any permission.

I wonder why you have the idea of shooting at Mental Hospital....
You enjoy pointing your camera at Mental patient?:sweat:
You bear to shoot the patient and viewing on the computer?:sweat:
Please respect the patient.

i guess you might get permission if you have a particular project from which the hospital and the patients may benefit. However, just go there are shot does not benefit the patients, specially since some of them may not be able to express if they like to be photographed or not. Such a project requires a lot of sensitivity, feeling for others and respect. shoot shoot is the wrong attitude. The same applies to an old folks home and other hospitals. if you want to take photos there then you spend first a number of visits WITHOUT camera to get to know to the people...

nv consider.. jst dont understand why ppl can shoot there hahhaa
It is a privacy issue for the patient and the family ... I am sure that you would not like the same thing done to you if you happen to have a family member there ... I guess that the golden rule is "do not wat you would not do want to be done unto yourself" ...

Dear Junniee,
I work in a psychiatic centre in Singapore and would agree on respecting the privacy and dignity of the patients in IMH - this is very important. What you encoutered may have been one of the staff who has already cleared with the authorities within and guidelines concerning the identity of the patients would be observed also. If that chap was not a staff he/she would have gotten clearance to do so. If no clearance, he/she should be "shot". So, it's advisable not to take any pics of them.
