WHAT IS MENTAL HEALTH RECOVERY ⛅️?

At WorkWithTheBrainYouHave (this FB Page) and http://www.LetsConnectProject.com (our social venture project), this is what believe β€œMental Health Recovery” means:

Recovery means being able to create and live a meaningful life and contribute to our community, even with (having) our mental health issues.

Recovery is about all of our life, not just our symptoms. It involves:

β€’ finding hope, and developing self-esteem and resilience

β€’ having a sense of purpose and meaning in our life

β€’ building healthy relationships

β€’ gaining independence

Recovery is not the same as a cure.
