Recovery and personalisation both challenge the current predominance of professional, clinical knowledge over the expertise of lived experience in the mental health system and require significant changes in the culture, practice and organisation of mental health services.

The purpose of this paper is to explore the links between recovery and personalisation and demonstrate how both are part of a common agenda for mental health system transformation. While personalisation is a more recent concept, it builds on approaches that are already underway as part of recovery-oriented practice.

Recovery, personalisation and personal budgets is the second of a series of briefing papers from ImROC.

Audience:  Mental health services, commissioners.
