about us.

The Dr. N. S. Vahia Foundation (NSVF) is a Not For Profit Organization. It was founded in 2008, by his students, well wishers and family members. Its aim is to enhance neuropsychiatry in India.

Ever since its inception in 2008, it has hosted educational programmes for young psychiatrists & other mental health professionals on subjects related to newer developments in the field of mental health.

After embarking on a programme to provide merit-based travel grants to trainee psychiatrists from Mumbai to participate at the Annual Conferences of the Indian Psychiatric Society (IPS), NSVF is now set to expand its activities to provide professionals exposure to global psychiatry. Presumably, this will translate into improved and affordable patient care in India.
