Promoting recovery from mental health problems is a guiding principle within modern mental health care. Working in partnership with service users, new practice techniques are being designed and delivered that can allow individuals to thrive within society and move towards a fulfilling life beyond their diagnosis. Recovery remains a broad and subjective term though and understanding what this means for your service users and how to implement recovery into your practice is an important challenge. Developed in partnership with Certitude – an influential charity providing support for people with mental health problems or learning disabilities – this book will answer all your questions about recovery in mental health nursing. It provides clear explanations and practical guidance that you can immediately bring into your work on placement.

Secure Recovery is the first text to tackle the challenge of recovery-oriented mental health care in forensic services and prison-based therapeutic communities in the UK. Recovery as an emergent paradigm in the field of mental health presents a challenge to all services to embrace a new clinical philosophy, but nowhere are the implications more profound than in services that are designed to meet the needs of mentally disordered and personality-disordered offenders, both men and women. The chapters collected together in this book represent a cross-section of experiences in high, medium and low secure services and prison-based therapeutic communities in England and Scotland that have begun to implement a recovery orientation to the rehabilitation of offenders with mental health needs. Secure Recovery sets out a road map of guiding principles, practical and evidence-based strategies for promoting service user participation in their care and treatment and further demonstrates the adaption of traditional treatment approaches, and the development of innovations in rehabilitation, as well as tackling training for staff teams, and the evaluation of service delivery. This book provides a valuable resource and an inspiration to practitioners working across forensic mental health settings, increasing understanding of contemporary challenges and suggesting ways of moving forward.

For most of us, the term 'recovery' in mental health implies hope and normality for those suffering from emotional distress. It is understandable why recovery has therefore become a significant goal for mental health services. But what does recovery mean for those who are struggling to see it through? Is the emphasis on recovery always a positive thing? This book takes a critical sociological look at personal and public assumptions and understandings. In particular: • It explores what the recovery movement signifies today, offering readers a critical, reflexive view of its scientific, policy and political consequences. • It considers what recovery means from social, medical and patient perspectives, and the implications of these conflicting views, • It reveals some of the risks and benefits for people with mental health problems encountering a system that expects them to recover. Offering a comprehensive and thought-provoking overview of the concept of recovery from mental illness, this book is a must-have for students studying mental health across a range of subjects, including Sociology, Social Work, Psychology and Nursing.
