The mental health implications of street sex work: a literature review
Carey, Mekele (2009) The mental health implications of street sex work: a literature review. [Dissertation (University of Nottingham only)] (Unpublished)
Background: Over decades, divergent discourses have debated the existence of prostitution. It remains the subject of conflicting theoretical and moral opinion. In the United Kingdom, the criminal justice system is the dominant figure involved in managing prostitution and their public ‘nuisance’. Street prostitutes have been at the forefront of those affected by this response. This punitive approach has lead to their health needs, and consequently their mental health needs, being somewhat overlooked.
