A tool for starting conversations about recovery and recovery-oriented mental health services.
The concept of "recovery" in mental health refers to living a satisfying, hopeful, and contributing life, even when mental health problems and mental illnesses cause ongoing limitations. Implementing recovery-oriented practices that will enhance health outcomes and quality of life for people with lived experience and their families is at the heart of the Mental Health Strategy for Canada.

The shift to recovery-oriented practice is already underway with a growing number of excellent initiatives in place across the country. The MHCC is committed to learning from and working with all stakeholders to accelerate this shift by encouraging dialogue about recovery; promoting successful policies, programs and practices; and, providing tools to help transform practice.
Recovery is at the heart of other Commission initiatives
Change requires everyone’s participation. Working with stakeholders and champions across the country, from grassroots to governments, the MHCC’s Recovery Initiative has the potential to accelerate recovery-oriented approaches. Its impact is expected to extend beyond mental health systems to include sectors such as justice and education, among others.
