We are actively seeking partners who want to work co-productively with us and others to help improve personal outcomes. Making Recovery Real is a programme for sustainable change in Scottish mental health services.
The aim of Making Recovery Real is to
create and sustain exemplars of recovery focused good practice in mental
health. Adopting a recovery approach demonstrates a commitment to
person centeredness, fully informed by the lived experiences of people
in recovery. It is a rights and strengths based approach which seeks to
improve personal outcomes and foster the empowerment of individuals.
SRN wants to work collaboratively with partners in Scotland who are
committed to achieving recovery outcomes. Potential partners who wish to

policy and practice.
