Supporting and promoting recovery is one of the four key aims of Scotland’s National Programme for Improving Mental Health and Well-being. The Scottish Recovery Network is funded to work towards this aim. The study on which this discussion paper is based (completed mid-2006) aimed to contribute to development of recovery in Scotland through critical inquiry. Three linked methods were used: review of key local, national and international texts on experience, policy, practice and recovery-focused research, semi-structured, informal interviews with 11 key actors from the four constituencies on their perceptions of the emergence and development of ‘recovery’ and implications for implementation of a recovery agenda, and notes taken at local and national recovery events, meetings or conferences documenting content and use of recovery language in public settings.

An occupational perspective of the recovery journey in mental health

The philosophy of occupational therapy and that of recovery are markedly similar; however, there is limited research linking occupation to recovery in mental health. This study aimed to explore the relationship between recovery and occupation in consumers with mental health problems. A qualitative method in the form of narratives was chosen in exploring the uniquely subjective experiences of mental health, occupation and recovery. Five members of a mental health support group (GROW) were engaged in semi-structured interviews, whereby individual narratives were analysed through comparative methods to identify categories and themes. Five categories emerged: (1) The recovery map, (2) GROW has just given me the platform, (3) You have to become active, (4) The great barriers and (5) Where am I now ... I couldn't bear it if I was any better. The participants' experiences of recovery highlighted the necessity for occupational engagement in a supported environment. The benefits of occupation included feelings of social cohesion, meaning, purpose, normalisation, routine, competence, productivity, skill acquisition, routine and pleasure. These factors enabled the participants to re-establish self-concepts and subsequently promoted mental health. The findings may have implications for occupational therapy practice, whereby occupational therapy could facilitate a leadership role in recovery-orientated mental health services.

Supporting mental health service users back to work

Publisher:

Evidence accumulated over many years illustrates the benefits of work for mental health, including that of mental health service users. Despite strong evidence of the effectiveness of the individual placement and support (IPS) approach in enabling this group to find and keep paid employment, employment rates among mental health service users remain low, and IPS is not widely implemented in the UK. This paper reviews recent evidence for IPS, describes the key features of the approach and compares these with service users' accounts of the kind of support that they find helpful. The current situation regarding implementation of IPS is then considered, together with the barriers hindering implementation. It is clear that the barriers are multifaceted, and action will be required at a number of levels if mental health service users are to be enabled to achieve their employment goals.
