Recovery - what does it mean?

"Recovery is about living well."

"A journey of personal growth and transformation."

"People with psychiatric diagnosis get well and stay well."

"Hope, control, opportunities."

Recovery means different things to different people. Many of us have our own definition of recovery. Tell us yours so that we can share them on this page. Click here to tell us - what does recovery mean to you?


18 May 2012 - "Finding fulfilment while staying well".

25 Jan 2014 - "To me, recovery means to master one's own mind and have self control - to treat oneself and others with respect and to be free of self-doubt and derogatory self-judgement."

Where can I find out more information about recovery?

Talk to others, especially peers who are on similar paths. We can all share our experiences and be creative together in finding personal wellness.
