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
