Guidelines for Recovery-Oriented Practice

In the spring of 2006, the landmark report Out of the Shadows at Last called for recovery to be “placed at the centre of mental health reform” in Canada. Since then impressive strides have been made across the country to embrace and implement a “recovery orientation,” both in policy and in practice. Many provinces and territories have incorporated the concept of recovery into their strategic and planning documents, and some have begun important initiatives to support recovery-oriented change. Many health and mental health facilities have embraced recovery as the goal and transformed the way they work. Recovery-oriented services and supports based in the community are becoming more widely available throughout Canada.
