Recovery project

‚ÄčWhat is recovery?
In mental health, recovery is the process through which people find ways to live meaningful lives, with or without the ongoing symptoms of their condition.

It is a personal journey of discovery that involves making sense of and finding meaning in what has happened, becoming an expert in your own self-care, building a new sense of self and purpose and discovering your own resourcefulness.

What is the Trust doing to support recovery?
