- teaching ethical knowledge and skills to students, clinical staff, employees, and managers
- offering advice in policy development/review
- encouraging dialogue and reflection about the relationships, practices, and perspectives involved in helping and supporting people who have or are recovering from a mental illness and/or addiction problem.
