Recovery describes the struggles of people with mental health problems to live meaningful and satisfying lives. The principles of recovery now underpin developments in mental health services in a number of countries. In England, they figure prominently in the New Horizons mental health strategy and have received widespread support from the major professional bodies.

This paper presents a practical methodology to help mental health services and their local partners become more recovery-oriented in their organisation and practices, and thereby to support these processes more effectively.
