Recovery from mental health challenges is possible

Many people grow and learn through their mental health experience – this is sometimes called ‘recovery’.

  • Everyone’s journey of recovery is different and often very personal.
  • People have different experiences of the mental health system – some find their medication and health professionals helpful, others do not.
  • Some people experiencing mental health challenges claim that family support, peer support and community engagement is just as important as ‘treatment’ in recovery.

A Place to Belong draws heavily from a recovery framework and a strengths framework for our practice.
