Recovery is… Personal.

 A mental illness involves a combination of different things: not just a mental health diagnosis, but a person’s individual experiences and history, family relations, living habits, physical health, financial situation, and trauma. Because everybody experiences mental illness differently, their approach to recovery is different. Culture and cultural background in all of its diverse representations—including values, traditions, and beliefs—are keys in determining a person’s journey and unique pathway to recovery.

Recovery emerges from hope. The belief that recovery is real provides the essential and motivating message of a better future. The first step in the journey to recovery begins with a decision that life must improve.
