The recovery model emphasizes and supports a person's potential for recovery. Recovery sees symptoms as a continuum of the norm rather than an aberration. Mental health recovery is generally seen in this approach as a personal journey rather than a set outcome, and one that may involve developing hope, a secure base and sense of self, supportive relationships, empowermentsocial inclusion, coping skills, and meaning.
