What is Recovery?  

The Mental Health Commission of Canada states “recovery” in mental health refers to living a satisfying, hopeful and contributing life, even when a person may be experiencing ongoing symptoms of a mental health problem or illness. Recovery journeys build on individual, family, cultural, and community strengths and can be supported by many types of services, supports, and treatments. Recovery principles, including hope, dignity, self-determination and responsibility, can be adapted to the realities of different life stages and to the full range of mental health problems and illnesses. Recovery is not only possible, but it should be expected. Championed by people with lived experience of mental health problems and illnesses for decades, recovery is being widely embraced by practitioners, service providers and policy makers in Canada and around the world. It is recognized as key to achieving better mental health outcomes and improving mental health systems. In recovery-oriented practice, service providers engage in shared decision-making with people with lived experience of mental health problems and illnesses, offering a range of services and supports to fully meet a person’s goals and needs. Recovery approaches stand on two pillars 1) Recognizing that each person is unique, with the right to determine their path toward mental health and wellbeing; and 2) Understanding that we live in complex societies where many intersecting factors (biological, psychological, social, economic, cultural, and spiritual) have an impact on mental health and wellbeing.
