National Mental Health Recovery Framework: Policy and Theory.

About this resource

The release of our national recovery framework marks a pivotal moment in the history of mental health services in Australia. Recovery approaches are not new here; the movement has been gaining strength and momentum over many years. It began as people with lived experience, carers and advocates sought greater influence and control over their experiences in mental health services. Then individual practitioners and organisations began to incorporate the recovery approach into their practice and service provision. What started as a grassroots movement led to government policy as national, state and territory governments formally adopted a recovery approach. A national recovery framework agreed by all governments across Australia is the next important step along the path.
