Abstract

Background and aim: The role of place in mental health recovery was investigated by synthesizing qualitative research on this topic. Methods: Using a meta-ethnographic approach, twelve research papers were selected, their data extracted, coded and synthesized. Findings: Place for doing, being, becoming and belonging emerged as central mechanisms through which place impacts recovery. Several material, social, natural and temporal characteristics appear to enable or constrain the potential of places to support recovery. Conclusions: The impact of place on recovery is multi-faceted. The multidimensional interactions between people, place and recovery can inform recovery-oriented practice. Further research is required to uncover the role of place in offering opportunities for active engagement, social connection and community participation.
