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:

Finding hope

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?
