Mandala is a student run association of the Department of Psychology. Mandala is a graphical representation of the centre or the self as described by neo-Freudian Carl Jung. Examples of the mandala can be found in all cultures. It is found in Christianity in frescoes with animal images representing the apostles. In Indian culture, it is found in yogic practices and religious texts.

Drawing from this concept, the ethos of the association is to Stay Centred. Its various activities thus aim to spread awareness about mental illness and mental health. This, in turn, will help students develop holistically and lead balanced lives.

In this regard, the association organises various workshops, guest lectures, street plays and field visits. Students are also encouraged to share their experiences in the bi-annual magazine titled Reflections. Through their various activities, the association hopes to expose students to the mental health field, and to promote a holistic understanding of mental health.
