    What Is Mental Health Recovery?

    Recovery is about living a satisfying life, in spite of facing mental health challenges.

    Recovery is about the whole of your life, not just your symptoms. It involves:

    • finding hope, and developing your self-esteem and resilience
    • having a sense of purpose and meaning in your life
    • building healthy relationships with people in your community
    • gaining independence in your life.

    Recovery is not the same as a cure. It makes sense to many people because it concentrates on you as a person, rather than just a set of symptoms
