Supporting recovery in mental health – NHS Confederation – 21 June 2012

“The Implementing Recovery through Organisational Change (ImROC)project is a new approach to helping people with mental health problems that aims to change how the NHS and its partners operates so that they can focus more on helping those people with their recovery.

The Department of Health commissioned the NHS Confederation’s Mental Health Network and the Centre for Mental Health to pilot this major national project involving 29 mental health provider sites from April 2010. This Briefing details the interim findings of the project.

In mental health, ‘recovery’ means the process through which people find ways of living meaningful lives with or without ongoing symptoms of their condition. Users of mental health services have identified three key principles:

• the continuing presence of hope that it is possible to pursue one’s personal goals and ambitions
• the need to maintain a sense of control over one’s life and one’s symptoms
• the importance of having the opportunity to build a life beyond illness.”
