MENTAL HEALTH RECOVERY
To recover is to live a full and satisfying life alongside the challenges of mental health. Recovery is not only possible, it is probable–the stories and the studies tell us so. People with the lived experience of mental health Recovery have led the way, and now increasingly the Recovery vision and approach is being widely embraced by peers, family members, practitioners, service providers and policy-makers around the world.
