Mental illness can easily complicate conflict. On the one hand, mental illness can provide challenges for the process of dispute resolution itself. On the other hand, it can impact the types of solutions that will satisfy the needs of all parties and provide a lasting solution.
Specialized dispute resolution in contexts of mental illness can help to manage disputes in such circumstances, either through mediation, conflict coaching, or managing family conflicts. When mental illness plays an important role in either the context or content of the dispute, having someone who works both with conflict management and mental health can be invaluable.
