Persons with severe mental illness experience episodic crises, resulting in frequent visits to hospital emergency departments (EDs). EDs, however, are not the most effective treatment environments for these individuals who might better be served elsewhere in an environment based on recovery-oriented framework. The purpose of this study is to describe the lived experience of guests (persons in emotional distress) and staff (counselors, psychiatric nurses, and peer counselors) of a community, recovery-oriented, alternative crisis intervention environment-The Living Room (TLR)...
January 2014: Issues in Mental Health Nursing
Keith Humphreys, Anna Lembke
The concept of recovery has been an influence on addicted individuals for many decades. But only in the past 15 years has the concept had a purchase in the world of public policy. In the USA, federal and state officials have promulgated policies intended to foster 'recovery-oriented systems of care' and have ratified recovery-supportive laws and regulations. Though of more recent vintage and therefore less developed, recovery policy initiatives are also being implemented in the UK. The present paper describes recovery-oriented policy in both countries and highlights key evaluations of the recovery-oriented interventions...

OBJECTIVES: This study sought to explore the views of clinical psychologists towards the concepts of 'risk' and 'recovery' and to set those views against the context of mental health services. DESIGN: An exploratory, social constructionist grounded theory methodology was adopted. METHODS: Eleven clinical psychologists working in adult mental health services each participated in one individual semistructured interview. RESULTS: The clinical psychologists studied were aware of the emergence of recovery-oriented approaches, but felt unable to incorporate them in practice because of perceptions of being bound by both their own limitations and those of their circumstances, including issues of risk, thus giving rise to dilemmas in professional practice...

Susan Kidd, Amanda Kenny, Carol McKinstry
The present study describes participants' perspectives of the meaning of recovery-oriented care in developing services for people with psychosocial disability associated with mental illness. Participants were involved in a 12-month cooperative inquiry action-research group from August 2012 to July 2013, with six consumers, four clinicians, and a carer. A major finding was the importance of the facilitation of dialogue that acknowledged the asymmetrical power differences between participants. Thematically-analysed data identified an overarching global theme: 'I want services to hear me'...

Diary writing is a centuries-old method of recording events, experiences, thoughts, and feelings that might offer potential as a tool that consumers and nurses could utilize in recovery-oriented practice. While the diary has been used within health disciplines to detail and communicate personal experiences to enable collaborative examination of progress, a diary can also provide a more complete picture of what life is like; not only within the confines of a health service environment, but also outside. In recent times, the diary appears to be experiencing a renewed interest in terms of health care...
