Caption: Psychiatric patient in a strait-jacket, hugging his knees. This artwork was published in an 1838 French work on mental illness (Des maladies mentales) by the French psychiatrist Jean-Etienne Dominique Esquirol (1772-1840). Esquirol established a private mental asylum in Paris, France, in around 1801. He also worked to establish mental health courses and pioneered psychiatry and reforms in mental health provision. By 1838, he had succeeded in establishing a national law regarding metal health provision in hospitals. This artwork is by the French engraver Ambroise Tardieu (1788-1841).
