The Realising Recovery learning materials were developed jointly by the Scottish Recovery Network and NHS Education for Scotland. They are designed to support all mental health workers to develop their recovery focused practice.
The following modules are included:
Developing the materialsIn developing the materials we drew on literature and evidence from a wide range of sources. Most importantly the design of the learning has been shaped by the lived experience of people in Scotland who identify themselves as in recovery or recovered from a mental health problem. The findings of the Scottish Recovery Network’s 2007 narrative research report [link to narrative page in activities] provided the primary evidence base for these materials.
The materials build on The 10 Essential Shared Capabilities (Scotland) learning materials and are designed to provide further learning to enable mental health workers to work alongside people as they create their own unique recovery journeys.
Together, these learning materials offer mental health workers opportunities to develop their knowledge, skills and values in ways that maximises the involvement of service users, embrace the belief that recovery is possible and facilitate new relationships between people who use services and the communities they live in.
