Let’s talk about recovery

Here at SRN we want to get people talking (and listening!) about recovery but we know that it can sometimes be hard to get the conversation going. That’s where we can help!

Talking about recovery can connect us with other people, help us make sense of our experiences and inspire hope. It can allow us to celebrate our recovery journeys and share the valuable learning we get on the way.

Free resources to encourage recovery conversations

Let’s talk about recovery animation

Our short animation  Let’s talk about recovery  (1 min, 40 secs) is a great way to introduce the idea of recovery and wellbeing and get the conversation started. This is complimented by our Let’s talk about recovery leaflet

Let’s talk about recovery conversation cards

Our work with communities across Scotland has highlighted that another great way to encourage conversations and local action around recovery and wellbeing is to use our Let’s talk about recovery conversation cards.

Based on the themes from the CHIME framework* this pack of cards are an ideal way for people, organisations and communities to get discussions started about what is important to them.

Live in Scotland? You can order hard copy leaflets or packs (s)** of the cards at info@scottishrecovery.net or contact SRN on 0141 240 7790.
