A Model For A Recovery Oriented Mental Health System


These documents provide information on a recovery oriented mental health system.

There are four task areas. These are:

* Recovery
* Relationships
* Internal Systems
* External Systems

Within each task area there are four domains. These are:

* Knowledge
* Attitudes/Values
* Skills
* Behaviors

There is a grid for each of six identified roles in the recovery oriented mental health system. These roles are:

* 1. The Person In Recovery
* 2. The Persons Personal Support System (Family, Friends, Community, Etc.)
* 3. Direct Service Providers
* 4. Supervisors of Direct Service Providers
* 5. Administrators of Recovery Oriented Mental Health Systems
* 6. Support Staff

It would be easiest to get a feel for the layout of the grids to look first at the grid for the Support Staff since it is the smallest and you can see it all on a single page. The documents are available in both MS Word (.doc) and in Adobe Acrobat (.pdf) format.

Please contact me if you wish to use these documents or if you desire training in developing a recovery oriented mental health system.

These documents are particularly well suited for curriculum development. For example, looking down the columns under the Knowledge or Skills areas for either the Person in Recovery or Direct Service Providers, one would have an idea of the areas that would need to be taught to develop a recovery oriented system.

In addition to the six role documents, there is a Cover Sheet, an Introduction that explains how the process was developed, a brief list of Recovery Principles and a fairly extensive Bibliography.
