Putting recovery into action means focusing care on supporting recovery and building the resilience of people with mental health problems, not just on treating or managing their symptoms.
The recovery model aims to help people with mental health problems to look beyond mere survival and existence. It encourages them to move forward, set new goals and do things and develop relationships that give their lives meaning.
Recovery emphasises that, while people may not have full control over their symptoms, they can have full control over their lives. Recovery is not about ‘getting rid’ of problems. It is about seeing beyond a person’s mental health problems, recognising and fostering their abilities, interests and dreams.
Recovery can be a voyage of self-discovery and personal growth. Experiences of mental illness can provide opportunities for change, reflection and discovery of new values, skills and interests.
The recovery model used at Clifton Lawns is based on the Recovery Star Model. All RMN’s at Clifton Lawns are trained in the use of this model and support service users to discuss important issues, assess where they are now and where they are going.
These assessments help service users set realistic and achievable goals in their recovery.
At clifton Lawns we have had the pleasure of helping many people back to happy, independent lives. Here are a few recent success stories.
