Research output: Contribution to conferenceAbstractpeer-review


This symposium is a presentation bringing together the findings of an adult clinical mental health service, a not-for-profit mental health and disability support organisation and consumers involved in planning, service delivery and evaluation. This is a demonstration service in terms of working collaboratively to support recovery and social inclusion. The partnership, collaboration and the presence of the participant as active in their own recovery will be central to the presentation. The recovery journey is a tremendously personal one and those travelling alongside, whether clinicians, peers, support workers, carers or others, have a sensitive role to play. In addition to the ethical factors and benefits of a recovery and strengths focus these principles are integral to the person's growth and enrichment of life. We strive to hold the person in the centre of the process during their stay and in their recovery as a whole.
