The role and importance of values in mental health and mental health services is becoming the focus of increasing attention. This ranges from more philosophical but important questions such as "what are values in mental health?" to more practical questions such as "where does one see evidence of them in practice?", as well as issues of value awareness and working with value diversity. They clearly underpin important and contentious areas in mental health.
