Abstract: Tensions regarding the ethics of mental health research are multi-layered and complex. Factors such as the challenges presented by the social construct of vulnerability, issues of capacity to consent and the tendency to homogenise the population diagnosed with mental health conditions create a challenging epistemological backdrop to inquiry. Such issues are further complicated by the contemporary endeavour to work with ‘Big Data’ (henceforth, BD) generated by governments and institutions. Alongside this, the notion of parity of esteem, broadly conceptualised as a mindset which places responsibility on society to think of the whole person, has emerged.
