Abstract

The ideas of ‘recovery’ arise from the experiences of people with mental health problems. The recovery approach emerged in the North American civil rights and consumer and survivor movements from the 1970s onwards. It is concerned with social justice, individual rights, citizenship, equality, freedom from prejudice and discrimination. In this paper we discuss a project in England that has examined how mental health services may be transformed to be more supportive of recovery and the implications that this has for professional practice.
