What does “Mental Health Recovery” mean?
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, in partnership with six other federal agencies, defines “mental health recovery” as follows:
"Mental health recovery is a journey of healing and transformation for a person with a mental health disability to live a meaningful life in communities of his or her choice while striving to achieve full human potential or “personhood”.
The Pennsylvania Office of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services (OMHSAS) has endorsed the following definition of mental health recovery:
"Recovery is a self-determined and holistic journey that people undertake to heal and grow. Recovery is facilitated by relationships and environments that provide hope, empowerment, choices and opportunities that promote people reaching their full potential as individuals and community members."
Peerstar LLC embraces these definitions of mental health recovery and strives to assist our clients in their journeys of healing and transformation, helping them achieve their full potential as individuals and community members by facilitating relationships and environments that provide hope, empowerment, choices and opportunities
