National Institute of Mental health and Neuro Services (NIMHANS) – A friend to those less understood in the city! Established in 1973, NIMHANS is a Medical institute of National importance. NIMHANS, a multidisciplinary central government institute in the field of mental health and neurosciences, was the result of the amalgamation of the erstwhile mental hospital and the All India Institute of Mental Health. The priority gradient adopted at the Institute is service, manpower development and research. Coming across as a friend to those who need extra care, NIMHANS has had the reputation of being the only centre in the country to devise strategies and treatment methodologies that help those affected with psychiatric disorders, thus deeming it to be declared as an Institute of National Importance by an Act of Parliament.
