Importance of spirituality and cultural sensitivity in practice

Mental health is understood by every different community through a diverse range of attitudes, values, and norms. In a therapeutic setting, professionals should be aware of the range of cultural beliefs that they may encounter and how they interact with service users’ perspectives on the world and their mental health to be able to treat that individual with sensitivity and respect.
