Getting By, Getting Back, and Getting On: Matching Mental Health Services to Consumers' Recovery Goals

Some ideas on how your Clinicians / doctors / support team and family can help with your recovery:


The goal of this study was to better understand mental health recovery from the point of view of mental health consumers to identify opportunities for practice improvements that closely align services with consumer goals and consumer-preferred outcomes.


Mental health recovery is complex and dynamic; individuals’ recovery goals can be expected to change over time. Person-centered care must accommodate changing consumer priorities, services must be flexible and responsive, and outcomes need to match consumers’ objectives.

Clinicians can assist in
(a) identifying recovery goals,
(b) monitoring progress toward and recognizing movement away from goals,
© tailoring support to different phases/stages, and
(d) supporting transitions between phases/stages.
