What does ‘recovery’ mean?
Understanding what recovery means from a mental health aspect can feel rather complicated. Essentially it is the journey that an individual experiences as they work to increase the following aspects:
Establishing a secure base
Developing an understanding of self
Building supportive relationships
Empowerment and Inclusion
Learning and practice of effective and healthy coping strategies
Gaining a sense of meaning
What do these mean to you? What do they mean in practice? How do we describe them?
