Abstract

This paper seeks to highlight that researchers can generate the potential for benefit to all stakeholders within the research process through maintaining a wide understanding of ethical and emotionally intelligent behaviours. A range of ethical perspectives is examined before introducing a model which highlights key challenges and benefits of undertaking research within mental health contexts. Excerpts from both current and recent projects are then applied to the model. Finally, it is argued that many of the most ethically challenging issues arise outside of the realms and remits of ethics committees, consequently requiring the mental health researcher to possess and develop his or her ethical and emotionally intelligent capabilities.
