Although the sexuality of people with mental health problems raises important clinical, social and legal concerns, there is relatively little written about the subject, and it is clear that staff often feel confused and embarrassed when discussing these issues with colleagues, carers and service users. Staff are often unsure about how to balance service users' rights to live a full life (including the right to express themselves sexually) with the need to protect people considered to be vulnerable. Here, Richard Pacitti and Graham Thornicroft describe how Mind in Croydon made a film about sex, relationships and mental health to help explore these issues further.‘Those of us who have been diagnosed with major mental illness do not cease to be human beings by virtue of that diagnosis. Like all people we experience the need for love, companionship, solitude, and intimacy. Like all people we want to feel loved, valued, and desired by others.’ (Patricia E Deegan, 1999).‘Not having a relationship if you want one can be like that constant feeling of being hungry and not being fed.’ (Bill, contributor to Unspoken)

In order to develop a sustainable competitive advantage in the knowledge based economy, senior managers need to ensure that customer relationship management is placed within a clearly defined organizational culture that embraces organizational learning. Senior managers are required to exhibit a proactive approach to leadership that results in creative solutions being found to solve complex problems. Open communication reinforces the decision‐making process and allows mutually based partnership arrangements to develop. This being the case, the network approach to business development can be viewed, as collectivist in orientation and this should allow partnership arrangements to be developed through time.
