How do social firms contribute to recovery from mental illness? A qualitative study

How do social firms contribute to recovery from mental illness? A qualitative study Background: A definition of recovery drawn from qualitative literature and the ‘consumer/survivor’ movement suggests that recovery should be seen as a way of developing satisfaction and purpose in life, whether or not symptoms of mental illness are present. A qualitative review suggested that meaningful activity may facilitate recovery by providing a sense of purpose in life. Social firms may be well placed to offer this activity due to their ethos of empowerment, their community integration and their similarity to ‘recovery‐oriented services’. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Clinical Psychology and Psychotherapy (An International Journal of Theory & Practice) Wiley

Abstract

Background: A definition of recovery drawn from qualitative literature and the ‘consumer/survivor’ movement suggests that recovery should be seen as a way of developing satisfaction and purpose in life, whether or not symptoms of mental illness are present. A qualitative review suggested that meaningful activity may facilitate recovery by providing a sense of purpose in life. Social firms may be well placed to offer this activity due to their ethos of empowerment, their community integration and their similarity to ‘recovery‐oriented services’.
