Mental illness in India is generally considered incurable, inviting stigmatization and exclusion. Despite studies in the field, there is a dearth of exhaustive research on the management of mental health in India. This book fills an important gap in the study of mental illness, the perceptionsconcerning it, and the different approaches towards its management and treatment. The book highlights the importance in the Indian context of alternative therapy including religious therapy, and yoga and ancient ayurveda. Highlighting the 'Indianization' of psychiatry, including psychotherapyfounded on Indian philosophy and the recourse to myth and religious idioms, the book aims to acquaint conventional western practice with the immense scope of alternative techniques and practice in the treatment of mental illness.
