Abstract

ABSTRACT

Although the government of the United Kingdom strives to address the needs of individuals engaged in mental health services, its policies must, by their nature, reflect a utilitarian approach. When a client chooses to disengage from services, mental health professionals can find themselves in an ethical dilemma in which adhering to policies can lead them to hyperactive conduct, whereby the client may experience what feels more like stalking behavior than therapeutic care.
