National Empowerment Centre

http://www.power2u.org/articles/recovery/new_vision.html
These days people are talking about recovery from mental illness. This  is a great step forward. Even using the word recovery in a field too long dominated by the goal of stabilization is refreshing. But whose  vision of recovery are people talking about? I thought we were all  talking about the same view of recovery. I see two distinctly different  visions of recovery emerging, however. We will call these the  Rehabilitation and Empowerment views of recovery. It is especially  important to clarify what recovery means in each model because many  states and counties nationally are proposing to create recovery-centered  policies and services. Distinctly different policies would result  depending on whose picture of recovery those policies are based on.
