Abstract: 
This paper frames the state of mental health policy in India in terms of seven sets of questions, and seeks to provide at least partial answers to these questions, based on a meta-analysis of existing research. Given the complexity of the subject, this paper is meant to serve more as a framing of issues for further research. In doing so, it seeks to clarify what issues are most pressing, those that are most difficult and perhaps those that can be tackled more readily to create some momentum in changing the relatively poor state of mental health care in India.
