The Mandaluyong City local government has inked on Tuesday a Contract of Usufruct with the National Center for Mental Health (NCMH) as both parties vowed to support one another in promoting mental health and in creating more programs to help the mentally challenged, according to a report by Manila Bulletin.

Mandaluyong City Mayor Menchie Abalos and NCMH Director Dr. Noel Reyes signed the contract at the city hall.

Usufruct is a legal right accorded to a person or party that confers the temporary right to use and derive income or benefit from someone else’s property. It is a limited real right that can be found in many mixed and civil law jurisdictions.

It combines the two property rights of usus and fructus. Usus refers to the right to use something directly without damaging or altering it, and fructus refers to the right to enjoy the fruits of the property being used.

The NCMH is a 4,200-bed psychiatric hospital occupying 47 hectares of land in the city of Mandaluyong.

Formerly known as the Insular Psychopathic Hospital, the Mandaluyong Mental Hospital, and the National Mental Hospital, NCMH was established in December of 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.
