Part I: Conceptualizing, Framing and Politicizing Aboriginal Ethics in Mental Health

But it also raises questions on how definitions of ?mental illnesses? are arrived at by one?s world view or lens. What may be seen as a mental health problem from one world view can be seen as a positive, healing spiritual experience from another.
