What is Recovery?When is a Person Recovered? • WHEN REVIEWING LITERATURE WRITTEN BY THE LEADERS IN THE FIELD OF RECOVERY: • DR. PAT DEEGAN • MARY ELLEN COPELAND • DR. BILL ANTHONY • AND OTHERS IT IS CLEAR THAT RECOVERY IS A JOURNEY WHOSE DESTINATION INCLUDES…...
~ The process in which people are able to live, work, learn, and participate fully in their communities. Recovery is the ability to live a fulfilling and productive life despite a disability. ~ [President’s New Freedom Commission on Mental Health:Report to the President, 2003]
The federal government’s Mental Health Action Agenda states recovery should: Reinforce the message that mental illnesses and emotional disturbances are treatable and that recovery is the expectation. [Transforming Mental Health Care in America. The Federal Action Agenda: First Steps, SAMHSA, July 2005]
Consumers engaged in the process of Reintegration (Recovery) strive to achieve three goals: • They want to restore their relationships; • They want to move toward independent living; and • They want meaningful work. [Reintegration Today: Summer 2004]
Three Essential Elements of a Recovery-Focused Mental Health System: • Treatment: • To Address Impairments • Rehabilitation: • To Overcome Disabilities • Community Supports: • To Sustain Role Recovery
In the Context of Recovery… T he role of the person is expanded beyond that of waiting to be cared for, to that of learning how to take charge of the healing process. People are seen as a whole person instead of a collection of symptoms. They are no longer cases to be managed but rather are the key informant in the quest for recovery… [Adapted from MetaServices, Recovery Ctr.]
Recovery requires a culture shift of creating a “positive culture of healing.” Internal: • Hope / reawakening of hope • Understanding value, purpose, meaning of all lives - reclaiming a positive sense of self • Healing - control, wellness strategies, coping, resilience • Empowerment • Connection! External: • The facilitation of recovery: implementing a positive culture of healing, applying human rights, providing recovery-oriented services
OU RCU R R E N TRE A L I T Y SUPPORT SERVICES ~ For too many Americans with mental illness, the mental health services and supports they need remain fragmented, disconnected and often inadequate, frustrating the opportunity for recovery. ~ [President’s New Freedom Commission on Mental Health: Report to the President, 2003]
Support Services Update • Continued support of TMHCA and NAMI TN for advocacy and educational activities. • Beginning July 1, 2005, Tennessee’s 49 drop-in centers (3,300 averaged monthly unduplicated ) became peer support centers. This reflects the reality that peer support centers are becoming places for consumers to direct their own recovery process and to find the support in acquiring the necessary skills to utilize resources within the community.
Support Services Update continued • Updated Scope of Services for peer support centers that reflects the change to a more recovery focus. • Guidebook developed in collaboration with TMHCA to standardize how peer support staff conduct their job as well as assisting them to better understand the recovery process. • Wellness Recovery Action Plans (WRAP) to be implemented through the peer support centers.
OU RCU R R E N TRE A L I T Y EMPLOYMENT Research demonstrates that work is a key to recovery and that consumers who are employed are able to live more satisfactory and rewarding lives through this contribution to their communities. Studies show that……. 60% - 75% of the number of people with mental illness want to work. 85% - 95% are unemployed. [Baron, Anthony, Howell, Danley, & Birkel (NAMI), 2003]
Employment Needs and Challenges Work is a part of our lives that has an impact on our definition of self. • WORK: • increases financial security, • builds self-confidence, • improves opportunities for social interaction, and • promotes a sense of hope about the future. Persons measure success and failure and self-worth by the yardstick of their employment.
P ersons with mental illness and co-occurring disorders want to participate in normative activities, and the most important activity is work. EMPLOYMENT PROVIDES: • MONEY • STRUCTURE • A SENSE OF PURPOSE AND IDENTITY • A POSITIVE SELF-IMAGE AS ONE WHO CONTRIBUTES TO THE GOOD OF SOCIETY
When people with mental illness and co-occurring disorders work, they: • become less stigmatized • become less isolated • are less troubled by symptoms • use crisis services less often • experience fewer hospitalizations

OU RCU R R E N TRE A L I T Y TRANSPORTATION Accessible transportation is necessary for people with disabilities to go to work, get an education, receive medical care, and to have an active, inclusive role in society. Barriers include: • Lack of available transportation options • Lack of access to existing transportation services [Consumer/Survivor: Mental Health Information, 2003]
OU RCU R R E N TRE A L I T Y HOUSING Housing is, perhaps, the first line of treatment for people with serious mental illness. ~ The lack of decent, safe, affordable, and integrated housing is one of the most significant barriers to full participation in community life for people with serious mental illnesses. ~ [President’s New Freedom Commission on Mental Health: Report to the President, 2003]
Gregory Fisher, CMSW, Director Office of Housing and Homeless Services, Division of Recovery Services, TDMHDD

Housing Within Reach: The Mission To provide access and real systems change so that individuals with a mental illness or co-occurring disorder can secure resource materials in their effort to achieve the American dream of having a safe, affordable and appropriate place to call home in a welcoming and positive environment.
