What does recovery mean?


Recovery refers to the process in which people are able to live, work, learn and participate fully in their communities. There are studies showing that most people suffering from mental illnesses do get better but there are degrees. For some, recovery is the ability to live a fulfilling and productive life. For others, recovery implies the reduction of symptoms. Where my son was concerned, I noticed that the moment he gave up hope, he was unable to progress at all. I believe that hope plays an integral role in any person’s recovery.

One of the myths is: when someone develops a mental illness he/she will never recover.
