Towards partnerships in mental healthcare: Commentary on… understanding ‘recovery’ & becoming a recovery-oriented practitioner

  • Sue Bailey and Richard Williams

Summary

We consider key facets of the concept of mental health recovery and how they are reflected in other concepts that run through the emerging focus on public mental healthcare. We widen the scene to portray the niche into which recovery fits and show how it and recent research indicate why psychiatrists should use the social sciences more widely to complement neuroscience.
