Recovery Framework

For many people, recovery describes a holistic approach that offers greater opportunity for positive engagement with families, friends and communities. The National framework for recovery-oriented mental health services defines personal recovery as being able to create and live a meaningful and contributing life in a community of choice, with or without the presence of mental health issues.
