Making Recovery a Reality

Posted on 28th April, 2008

The Sainsbury centre for mental health has published Making Recovery a Reality which includes recovery concepts and application by Trust Practice Development Manager Laurie Davidson. The document explains ‘Recovery’ is an idea whose time has come. At its heart is a set of values about a person’s right to build a meaningful life for themselves, with or without the continuing presence of mental health symptoms. Recovery is based on ideas of self-determination and self-management. It emphasises the importance of ‘hope’ in sustaining motivation and supporting expectations of an individually fulfilled life.
