Suicide and self harm prevention with asylum seekers: Clinical challenges and human rights dilemmas.

Dr Michael Dudley

The argument is advanced that in such clinical work, the intersection of mental health with human rights violations and the social responsibility of helping professionals, is inescapable. Helping professionals undertaking such work for people in such desperate situations and who seek to critically engage with their clients for emancipatory purposes, will often need to operate as advocates as well as clinicians at individual and wider levels.
