National Institute of Mental Health and Neuro Sciences(NIMHANS) is a multidisciplinary Institute for patient care and academic pursuit in the frontier area of Mental Health and Neuro Sciences.

This hospital and All India Institute of Mental Health established in 1954 by Government of India were amalgamated on 27th December 1974, and thus was formed the autonomous National Institute of Mental Health and Neuro Sciences (NIMHANS).
