The nodal centre of the academic activites of Manasa Foundation is Manasa Nursing Home,a premiere private mental health institution which has done yeoman work in taking psychiatry to all sections of society- literate and illiterate, urban and rural. Considered as one of the biggest private mental health centres in South India, Manasa Nursing Home is a 100 bed facility.
Dr. Ashok Pai and his colleagues have treated a mind-boggling number of patients so far- over one lakh twenty-five thousand.They have also meticulously documented all the case histories. This makes Manasa Nursing Home an incomparable archival centre in mental health and also a veritable treasure house of probably clinical experience. This in fact is the overriding consideration for starting the courses. No university can provide the empirical data Manasa Nursing Home can.
