This position paper sets out the ten major challenges for mental health services to put recovery at the heart of their everyday practice. Implementing recovery means supporting people to take much greater control over the way that they are treated. It means challenging stigma and discrimination much more assertively in communities. And it requires mental health professionals to work in a very different way to support service users' own priorities and their hopes for the future.
