The Scottish Recovery Network (SRN) are delighted to announce the launch of a new initiative designed to
create and sustain ideals of recovery focused practice in Scottish
mental health.

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
be involved in Making Recovery Real will demonstrate that they are fully committed to:

  • Working in partnership with us and a range of partners to co-produce
    changes that will deliver better recovery focused outcomes for
    individuals.
  • Listening to and acting on different perspectives and seeking to
    develop solutions that build on the strengths of individuals and the
    communities they come from.
  • Changing the balance of power from professionals towards the individual and the community.
  • Sharing experiences, progress and challenges to promote wider
    learning, knowledge and understanding about developing recovery focused
    policy and practice.
