Mind, Medicine & Morals: The ethics of psychiatry and mental health care
St Anne's College, 56 Woodstock Road
Oxford OX2 6HS
It is a truism that mental health care does not receive the attention or resources devoted to care of physical health. This applies not only to clinical services and research but also to research and reflection on medical ethics and law. Healthcare ethics tends to focus on matters of life and death, especially at the beginning and end of life, and sometimes on the treatment of those whose cognitive capacity is diminished by illness or disability, but much less on mental health per se. The present conference seeks to redress this balance with discussion of a wide range of topics including:
- Resource allocation and mental health
- Ethical issues in forensic psychiatry
- Ethics of research in psychiatry
- Compulsory treatment of mental illness
- Mental illness and moral responsibility
- Assisted suicide for psychiatric reasons
- Mental health effects of sexual abuse
