Recovery and wellbeing
The good news is that recovery from mental illness is possible. The experience of recovery is deeply personal and individual, however it usually involves managing your mental health, developing new skills, and rediscovering a meaningful sense of belonging and identity.
Recovery does not happen in isolation. People who have experienced mental illness and recovery talk about the importance of developing quality relationships that support them. Developing and maintaining hope and inspiration, self-determination and taking responsibility for the process, also all support recovery.
As each person has a different pathway to recovery, people find their own activities and approaches to situations that work for them. Some people will find mindfulness exercises such as meditation contribute to their wellbeing, while someone else may not.
The pages in this section (which will be added to regularly) are general introductions to activities or aspects of life to build and maintain your own personal wellbeing and mental health.
