Recovery is a concept that is gaining prominence in the discourse about mental health. However, there is no consensus about what it means and debate continues about how it can be used to develop person-centred mental health services.

This paper is from one of the study days organised by Social Perspectives Network, which brings together the more diverse and seldom heard voices in the recovery debate.
