Scottish Recovery Network
The Scottish Recovery Network is an initiative of Scotland's National Programme for Improving Mental Health and Well-being. It was formally launched in October 2004. The network works to raise awareness of recovery and to develop a better understanding of what helps promote recovery across communities. The network shares ideas and practices based on evidence gathered in Scotland and learned from other countries.
SRN aims to:
- Raise awareness that people can and do recover from long term and serious mental health problems, and of what recovery might mean for people.
- Build our understanding of what helps people recover and stay well.
- Build capacity for recovery by highlighting and supporting examples of good practice.
SRN's Key Messages:
- People can and do recover from even the most severe mental health problems.
- Recovery means having the opportunity to live a satisfying and fulfilling life in the presence or absence of ongoing symptoms.
- No two people's recovery journey or experience will be the same.
- The critical assessment of attitudes and values can have a powerful impact on an individual's prospects of recovery.
