Authors:
BROWN Wendy, KANDIRIKIRIRA Niki
Publisher:
Scottish Recovery Network
Publication year:
2007
Pagination:
168p.
Place of publication:
Glasgow

This report is the result of what the authors describe as an innovative approach to research. By using a narrative method it states that people in recovery from long-term mental health problems are experts by experience and it reminds us that people can and do recover. The purpose of collecting recovery narratives across Scotland was to learn from each individual’s experience and identify common factors, share stories to inspire hope and offer tools and techniques for recovery among service users, carers, friends and families, service providers and the wider community, establish a Scottish evidence base of factors that help or hinder an individual’s recovery from long-term mental health problems, use the evidence to contribute to the development of policy and practice across all sectors, promoting a better understanding of what supports recovery and wellbeing, and guide and inform the work of the Scottish Recovery Network. Across the stories consistent internal and external elements could be found.

Mental health, recovery and employment

Supporting recovery for people with long-term mental health problems includes providing people with choices and opportunities for social development and self-determination. One such opportunity, which mental health service users have requested, is for improved support to gain and retain work and employment. This paper is not a review of the literature, but aims to encourage discussion and action around supporting people with long-term mental health problems to gain and sustain suitable employment, which in 'the mental health world’ should go hand in hand with the development of recovery orientated services. The paper considers the current situation with regard to employment for people with long-term mental health problems, and why employment opportunities and supports should be given greater priority. It looks at the links between an individual’s recovery process and gaining and retaining employment, and outlines some ideas on what can be done to overcome barriers to employment and to promote the development of mentally healthy workplaces that meet people’s needs.
