Building a Culture of Recovery:

In Central East Ontario


Our society’s self congratulatory belief

that we are free thinking and fair

people, who hold all citizens equal and

worthy, must be challenged. Our

society considers people with mental

health problems and substance abuse

as defective, disabled, or disordered,

despite that these labels perpetuate

Discrimination and are a barrier to

recovery.


.Building a Culture of Recovery

is a project that proposes values

and principles consistent with

recovery:

  • autonomy and empowerment

  • building hope

  • learning to think and live from a position of wellness, not illness.

Recovery Education for Allies: Building & Supporting Recovery Orientation for Clinical Services

The Culture of Recovery (www,cultureofrecovery.org) project advances

an agenda for change to systems as well as for people experiencing

mental health problems and substance abuse. The Culture of Recovery

project intends to form a new set of values and principles consistent

with a recovery perspective: autonomy and empowerment; building hope

and living from a position of wellness not illness.

Recovery Education for Allies builds on investments in education for

people in recovery and public education.

Please plan to attend this one day education session for Allies who plan for, lead/manage and deliver clinical services!

Autonomy; choice; hope; wellness; empowerment



Wrap stands for wellness recovery action plan
WRAP stands for: Wellness Recovery Action Plan.

  • WRAP is a self-help program that supports people, ideally in a group setting to reflect and become more aware of their strengths, abilities and resources to be “well”. Our project adopted WRAP as a cornerstone to building recovery awareness and capacity.


Wellness recovery action plan participant evaluation
Wellness Recovery Action Plan:Participant Evaluation:

44 reflected about their experience during

and following the program including

anecdotal reflections regarding the program

delivery as well as the personal impact

experienced as a result of participation in

the program.


The five key areas for consideration were
The five key areas for consideration were:

  • Are you more aware of your strengths

  • Do you feel better able to manage your distress and you risk

  • Do you experience more hope

  • Do you experience more social comfort

  • Do you understand more about recovery


Wrap evaluation
WRAP Evaluation

An overwhelming number of participants assessed excellence in program peer leadership (91%) and program materials (86%).

Overall, participants reported a collective 21% improvement on all measures. The most substantial improvements are noted in the areas of realizing hope (26%) and understanding the recovery perspective (31.4%).

.


The significant increase in the participants understanding of recovery and

realization of hope suggests a cumulative learning effect.


  • Participants describe that increased awareness of stressors and signs of distress led to proactive and preventive alternative behaviours and thinking. They indicate that these changes have in turn raised tolerance of distress as well as confidence levels in recognizing and responding to distress.


  • Finally, WRAP education has shifted the perspective of most participants to accept recovery as a journey toward wellness. Adjusting how they define their experiences using recovery language has shifted understandings about personal comfort and responsibility and has resulted in more confidence in being well.
