Title
Delivering Mental Health Services to Ethnic Minorities: Ethical Considerations
Abstract

Clinical psychology is currently seeing an increased awareness of ethnic minority issues in mental health service delivery. The Christian psychological literature however has been largely silent on these issues. Posited are responses by Christian mental health professionals and the church that address the mental health needs of ethnic minorities. Theological input that informs ethical human response includes Barth'€™s call for ethical human action based upon the commands of God, the neighborly love ethic, and Jesus'€™ model of ministry. Roles and recommendations are proposed for mental health professionals and the church in their efforts to deliver services to ethnic minorities.
