This title is directed primarily towards health care professionals outside of the United States. In this book the author charts the journey of recovery from severe and disabling mental health problems. The book's optimistic tone challenges the prevailing notion that recovery is an outcome open only to a minority. It describes the necessary transformation of mental health services into a recovery culture. At the heart of the book are five recovery stories which are a testament to the indomitable nature of the human spirit that enables us to rise above adversity. It is these themes that mental health professionals must engage with if they are to be guides and companions to people on their recovery journeys.

  • Uses a model of recovery based on the ‘hero's journey'
  • Maps a clear pathway to recovery that can be used collaboratively by clients and mental health professionals
  • In-depth exploration of recovery relationships and a recovery culture

Review:

“A passionate and well-presented guide to recovery for practitioners and everyone else...Watkins provides a vibrant and coherent vision to revitalise the tools professionals already have, showing how to use these to support and enable people’s recovery journeys...I recommend this book as the most powerful philosophic, poetic and practical introduction to the recovery vision to emerge in the UK.
Jan Wallcraft, Mental Heath Today, May 2008
