When you use a recovery perspective, it transforms how you connect with individuals who have serious mental illness (SMI). It engages people in their care plans and helps them become an active part of their own recovery. This guide provides valuable tips and insights on how to embrace and use a recovery perspective. We talked with individuals who are in recovery and work in leadership roles in peer support across the country. We asked them to tell us the most vital things that clinicians should know about people who are in recovery.

Use this guide to enhance your practice and share it with all colleagues on the mental health care team.
