What is recovery?
One in four of us will suffer from a mental health problem at some time in our lives.

But it doesn't have to be this way. Recovery is possible for everyone.
In mental health recovery is the process of rebuilding a satisfying, hopeful and contributing life with a diagnosis of mental health problems.
