Placing value on lived experience and supporting individual recovery journeys.

Presenter: Alison Bell

Living with a mental health condition can impact on a person’s life and that of their family, often leading to pain, loss and isolation. Mental health conditions can affect many areas of life including relationships, physical health, employment and financial security. Recovery begins when the resolve to regain and rebuild becomes a determination. This is also when a sound support network is imperative to the process which may include family, friends, health professionals and community in its varying aspects.

Recovering from mental health conditions does not just mean ‘getting better’ or finding a ‘cure’’; it is also about moving into a satisfying and fulfilling life. For many, recovery is full of twists and turns, ups and downs, as the journey is not always a straight and direct route. The process of recovery can be enlightening as people learn about themselves in a new light and understand their own strengths and qualities that are helping them on their unique recovery journey.

The purpose of this workshop is to provide a context for understanding recovery in relation to mental health. The workshop aims to highlight the principles underpinning recovery and recovery-oriented support. The value of the lived experience and the importance of promoting self-determinations will be a focus of the workshop. The workshop will be structured around a set of handouts, which will include up-to-date resources as well as tools for assessing recovery needs and supporting wellness.
