Did mental health care systems in the Indian Princely States mirror those of "colonial psychiatry" in British-governed India? In this lecture, Waltraud Ernst shows how mental health care in India was shaped by a more complex interplay of German, French, and American models of care, along with the persistence of indigenous medical communities.
