MANSA is a scale used to assess quality of life. Its name is short for Manchester Short Assessment of Quality of Life. It was developed by Priebe et al. in 1999.[1] The creators of the scale found the results of the scale to be comparable to the Lancashire Quality of Life Profile.[1]

The MANSA consists of 16 questions.
