Mental Illness among Indian Women

Bhargavi V Davar Community surveys, done roughly between the 1970s and the 1990s, provide information on the socio-demographic profile of a mentally ill person in Indian communities. However, these studies do not treat the aspect of gender nor are there other independent studies on women and mental illness. In order to fill a noticeable lacuna in women's health studies, information about mental illness in Indian women has been obtained from the primary data available from these studies. As gender has been used as a socio-demographic variable in all the studies, it was possible to cull out gender relevant data and re-analyse them from the gender perspective. This work is a secondary analysis.
